From Our Editors
Since the days of the Silk Road, thousands of years ago, traders and travelers have taken the Khyber Pass, a mountain road that cuts through the borders of Afghanistan and Pakistan. When they set up camp, many different cuisines mingled over campfires, inspiring traded recipes and flavors. Today on St. Marks Place, the Khyber Pass restaurant commemorates the diverse cuisines of its namesake by serving both Afghani cuisine and diverse Middle Eastern dishes. Their dining room is decorated in an opulent traditional style, with layered rugs, draped tapestries, and fringed tablecloths inspiring New York Magazine to call it "a perfect spot for romantics on a budget."
