Casablanca, the landmark Harvard Square restaurant, is closing at the end of August, according to owner Sari Abul-Jubein. The venue has been a gathering for professors, artists, writers and Bohemians for more than four decades.
Tucked under the Brattle Theatre at 40 Brattle St., Casablanca first opened its doors in 1955. Abul-Jubein put the restaurant up for sale last year, citing difficulties with competition and the economy.
