Shahrazad Restaurant

Moorish style plastered walls adorned with filigree Moroccan lanterns set the aesthetic tone at Shahrazad Restaurant, an East Side culinary institution since 1993. The decor is not the only Middle Eastern element of the restaurant, however—the restaurant earned a 2012 award for best Middle Eastern food from LocalEats.com. In the kitchens, cooks sprinkle slices of broiled lamb with crunchy nuts and sear swordfish marinated in house herbs and spices. There's also freshly blended hummus and crispy falafel. These staples can pair nicely with selections from the extensive wine list, which features a broad range of varietals. The staff pours sweet German riesling and an oaky cabernet sauvignon from Cyprus that's as bold as pursuing a degree in typewriter engineering.


There is a wide variety of dishes, but my favorite is the vegetarian combo. The pita bread is fresh and served warm.

The lamb was so special. The staff was super friendly and I will return for the lunch buffet.
