Café Natasha's Kabob International

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.
