A new restaurant at CityPlace has captivated its customers with its unique decoration, great service and phenomenal food: Carousel Can Can Café.
Following its opening about a month ago on the second floor of CityPlace, it stands out from its neighbors with its eccentric exterior design.
Inspired by the French can-can era of the 1890s, the decor features a hybrid of contemporary American design and playful carousel elements.
The menu features a variety of French-American dishes, balanced with international recipes as well.
“We have a twist of everything here. Pasta, casual … fun food,” said Paco Gracia, manager of the Carousel Can Can Café. “Our customers enjoy a great environment and entertainment everyday.”
During weekdays one can-can dancer performs to a mixture of can-can and modern music.
Interacting with customers, the dancer offers them some entertainment while they eat dinner. There are up to three can-can dancers on the weekends.
“People can get dinner anywhere; we offer good quality food and entertainment together,” Gracia added.
Carousel Can-Can Café has a family friendly environment. The can-can dancers interact with customers respectfully and make your dinnertime a time for fun.
PBA President Lu Hardin recently visited the restaurant and said, “Mary [my wife] and I live … next to the campus. Therefore, we walk to CityPlace often for dinner. The service was excellent. The crab cakes are a perfect 10 out of 10 and the entrée salad was very good. Overall, Mary and I would give Carousel Can Can high marks.”
Price wise, which is everyone’s concern nowadays, it’s pretty affordable. An entree costs from $12 to $26. For those on a budget, all appetizers and pizzas have a 50 percent discount from 3 to 7 p.m.
