This is an elegant, comfortable place that serves wonderful Persian specialties from family recipes. A complimentary plate of vegetables and cheese along with taftoon bread greets each diner. The garlicky hummus and eggplant dip are among the best in the city. Fall-off-the-bone lamb shanks are not to be missed, nor are any of the fabulous kebab dishes.
