Ravagh Persian Grill

Ravagh Persian Grill
Gramercy & Flatiron

Persian dishes make you feel healthier just by looking at them: The cuisine relies on simple, fresh ingredients and lots of grilling—and you can sample it here in the form of flavorful kebabs. The standard lamb versions are available, but try the albaloo polo with jujeh instead: chunks of cornish hen marinated in lemon, grilled and served with basmati rice spiked with sour cherries. An appetizer of mirza ghasemi (a warm, smoky puree of tomato and eggplant) makes for an elegant, hopelessly addictive change from the usual baba ghanoush; the four sambuseh (fried samosalike dumplings) can be dipped in a fiery chutney. With a bit of luck, you’ll have the option of ordering the refreshing faloodeh (rice noodles mixed in crushed ice and rose water) as a dessert special.
