A rotating gallery of Persian art, ranging from miniatures and medieval maps to modern photographs, adorns the walls of this beautifully detailed fantasy of food and art. The cuisine focuses on the Azerbaijanian corner of what is now northwest Iran, including exotically spiced specialties and dishes such as eggplant puree, pollo (rice dishes), kebabs, fesanjoon (pomegranate-walnut sauce), and lamb stews. The staff obviously enjoys explaining the menu, and the wine list is well selected for foods that often defy wine matches.

The one local spot that serves Persian cuisine in a sit-down venue, and does it very well. Good service, pleasant ambiance.
