Get your fill of flame-cooked fare with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of char-grilled fare and savory creations at Persepolis Persian Cuisine.
Persepolis Persian Cuisine's expansive menu of authentic spice-laden kebabs and savory dishes enlivens tables throughout their elegant dining room. Tempt appetites with a starter such as salad shirazi ($5.99), in which fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and herbs mingle, dressed formally in olive oil and crunching loudly with each step. Daily specials include khoresht gheimeh—cubed beef with persian split peas and sundried lime ($11.99)—or adas polo ($11.99) with steamed chicken atop rice, lentils, and raisins that sing show tunes in tinny voices during every lull in diners' conversations. Jumbo shrimp dance around the maypole of a char-broiled kebab with lemon, saffron, and butter sauce ($19.99) or opt for the vegetarian albaloo polo, char-broiled vegetable kebab atop basmati rice with sour cherries and saffron ($12.99). On Friday and Saturday evenings, belly dancers swivel past tables overflowing with aromatic dishes, undulating around a casual dining room ornamented by a large chandelier and eastern archways. Reservations are required.
Persepolis Persian Cuisine
The dining area at Persepolis Persian Cuisine exudes elegance, with ornate columns stretched toward arched room dividers and a glistening chandelier dangling delicately from the ceiling. Open every day of the week, the restaurant sends visitors on an exotic and tasty excursion, dishing out authentic Persian eats that include juicy kebabs served still sizzling from their dance with a grill’s open flame. On weekends, belly dancers sashay and sway throughout the eatery, and every day until 3 p.m., a royal buffet allows diners to eat as much as they wish and furnish second stomachs with enough food for the winter.
