Riverfront Times's Description
Husband-and-wife co-owners Behshid and Hamish Bahrami serve traditional Persian cuisine in this cozy South Grand establishment. It's elegant food: no pretensions, just pure flavors - and a great value as well. Whet your appetite with kashke-bademjune, a mash of eggplant, chickpeas and spices; or osh, a hearty lentil soup. But be sure to leave room for the wide selection of savory stews and grilled meats. Barreh polo, a tremendous shank of lamb, and fessenjoon, boneless chicken breast stewed in a pomegranate-and-walnut sauce, are standouts. Feeling adventurous? Try the tongue, tender slices of beef swimming in a sumptuous golden broth. You might never want a boring old hunk of sirloin again.
Tips from foursquare
My wife loves the pomegranate martinis.
So far, Natasha Cafè restaurant is the best in the area. The food taste is really good, especially the beef kabob. I really recommend this restaurant!
Try the Turkish Coffee Martini. Simply loaded with yum!
They have a separate vegan menu that you can ask for.
