Cafe Caspian

Houston is blessed with more than its share of attractive Persian restaurants, and Memorial's Cafe Caspian may be the prettiest, with its neoclassical arches and a ceiling painted to look like a sunny sky with puffy white clouds. The kitchen reaches comparable heights with its mast-oo-mooseer (shallot-mint-yogurt dip to be spread over airy taftoon bread), koobideh (skewered rolls of ground beef), gheymeh (beef stew topped with potato sticks), fesenjan (baked chicken with walnuts and pomegranates) and a juicy lamb shank.
