Best Persian Restaurant (2010)

Look for all of your Persian favorites here, including the intensely smoky, chunky eggplant dip, kashk-e-bademjan (topped with a big pile of caramelized shallots), or borani-e-spinach, an enormous plate of garlicky sautéed spinach with thick, rich homemade yogurt. Falafel, kebabs, and hummus sprinkled with sumac—this is the modest joint for all of our Middle Eastern fixes.
