My wife and I went to The Persian Room today. This is sort of a belated Valentine's Day. Both of had agreed to postpone the Valentine's dinner from Thursday to Saturday. Both of us work nearly 12 hours a day at our jobs.
We went to the Persian Room 02/16/2013 to find it quite busy. Thank goodness we had a reservation. We would have been waiting some time otherwise.
We ordered the following:
Torshi (kind of a pickled vegetable salad with wine vinegar)
Hommus with Eggplant delight (a dip)
Lamb and chicken combination dinner (for 2)...included koubideh
The torshi was good, but found it a bit sour.
Hommus was very good.
The lamb and chicken combination was very good and very heavy. My wife and I were able to bring a lot of it home simply because we were not able to finish it. The portion size was pretty big.
We really enjoyed the food. The inside of the restaurant looks like it is classy. We have eaten at a lot of restaurants that specialize in Middle Eastern cuisine. This is definitely one of them that ranks as the most classy. I would definitely recommend this to others.
Also look at the Caspian Market next door.
