Throughout the past millennia, the Iranian city of Shiraz has been celebrated for its nightingales, its poets and philosophers, and its wine, with the oldest known wine discovered just outside the city. Shiraz Cuisine seeks to capture this heritage of refinement amid its ambient-lit dining area, replete with vibrant paintings depicting grapes and Persian cuisine. To complement the bounty of traditional kebab and soltani plates, belly dancers swivel their hips inside the premises on Thursday night. On Friday, musicians strum guitars in time with the most rhythmic chewer in the restaurant.
“Every dish was great We ordered ße appetizers instead of one of the meals and that worked out great.”
“Great appetizers (especially Mirza Ghassemi) and they serve an excellent, fresh bread (taftoon) on the side. The lamb shank is worth trying: very tender and juicy.”
“Pleasant restaurant good food.”
