Useful information


This large, square dining room is ultra-grand and yet ultra-charming, with a melange of earthy, vivid hues, an inviting bar, and display kitchen fitted out with a tandoor oven. Find a seat at one of the high-backed banquettes or wood tables to start sampling from the classic Persian menu. Get those taste buds going with a yogurt dip accompanied by naan, radishes, feta, and herbs. Then dive full steam into an intensely savory gormeh sabzi—a stew of scallion, beef, and red kidney beans—served with saffron Basmati rice.
Desserts enhance the experience, with the staple baklava or a more creative Ice cream sandwich with rosewater and pistachios. Thirsty travelers will appreciate the Glimpse of Paradise cocktail, starring vodka, grapefruit, and cardamom syrup. - MICHELIN guide inspectors
