This was one of the recommended Persian Cuisine Restaurants in New York. I ordered Kashk-Bademjoon, and Soltani. The dinner started off with some generic heated pita bread, with a tiny bowl of mast-o-khiyar (yogurt with cucumbers) and a small bowl of a sour (basil-based) sauce, which was pretty good.
The appetizer (kashk o bademjoon) came out and was just an average dish, well seasoned, but it didn't have Kashk (whey), which is the MAIN seasoning ingredient in the appetizer, hence the name KASHK-o-bademjoon. The manager said that they make it with yogurt, not kashk, never heard that one before.
The Soltani came out, and the Barg was a little tough, and minimal seasoning, wasn't impressed at all, the Koubideh was a bit better seasoned and tastier. The rice was slightly under-cooked. The portions are good.
Overall, it's good to hit a persian restaurant when you go somewhere, the food was ok, the appetizer was disappointing and seemed cheaply made. For almost $40 per person, you can go to a great restaurant and enjoy the food and service. I will definitely be looking at another Persian spot.
