Elegant Persian cafe serving authentic Persian food. Fragrant, heaping platters of chelo kabob koobideh and joojeh kabob will help restore warm American-Iranian relations. The signature dish is zereshk polo, a special rice mixed with barberries and saffron. Try the homemade doogh, an unsweetened yogurt drink, but remember: It's an acquired taste. The Persian ice cream flavored with pistachios, rosewater and saffron makes for a charming ending to the meal.
