Dining out can be a great change of atmosphere, especially if you're used to eating your meals hastily in an unguarded meat locker. Have a seat with this Groupon.
$12 for $24 Worth of Persian Cuisine
The dinner menu includes boneless-lamb kebabs ($26) and jumbo-shrimp kebabs ($28). Valid for dinner only.
At Sadaf, variety is the main attraction. Kebabs arrive at tables skewered with juicy bits of chicken, seafood, beef, or lamb and share plate space with saffron-seasoned basmati rice. Exposed-brick walls show off bas-relief carvings of ancient symbols such as the Faravahar, which represents the Iranian nation. A ceiling painted to look like a clear sky with a thin veil of clouds and in-flight birds looks down on diners as they dig into lamb shank, boneless-chicken kebabs, and other delicacies. Weather permitting, guests can snag a seat on the front patio and scan the skies for majestic, soaring ostriches.
