The enticing aromas of Persian-style kebabs, stews, and vegetarian dishes made from local farmers’-market produce flood Char Fasl and mingle with the sights and sounds of belly dancing on Friday and Saturday nights. The boneless chicken kabob ($9.95 for lunch, $14.95 for dinner) is served on skewers with grilled tomato and basmati rice and, like a panicky mobster’s accounting ledgers, is cooked over an open flame. Char Fasl warms palates with hearty stews, such as the ghormeh sabzi ($8.95 for lunch, $12.95 for dinner) made with fresh herbs, red kidney beans, and chunks of beef. The rack of lamb ($20.95 for dinner only) provides a meaty place to hang one’s coat, and the Four Seasons dish ($15.95 for dinner only) offers a meat-free mélange of lima-bean rice, eggplant, hummus, and a skewer of grilled vegetables.
