Alborz Persian Cuisine
At Alborz Persian Cuisine, diners choose Persian and Middle Eastern morsels off an extensive menu or construct an extravagant sampler plate at the buffet. Servers diligently stock the buffet for lunch and on Friday¬–Sunday for dinner, filling up hot trays of food with items from the regular menu, including lamb, beef, and chicken entrees in addition to a pair of vegetarian plates. For diners picking straight off the menu, the restaurant's eponymous Alborz family plate satisfies groups with skewers of cornish hen, boneless chicken, filet mignon, lamb, and ground beef finished off with a handful of sides. On Friday and Saturday nights, guests find the dining room animated by a crew of belly dancers shimming for nearly two hours swathed in costumes brightly colored enough to rival a parrot's favorite lipstick.
