The last place you would expect to find divine Persian cuisine is in the most Brahmin section of Boston. But Lala Rokh is a well-established Beacon Hill favorite, a spot adored almost as much for its cozy, romantic atmosphere as it is for the adass palow (beef medallions). The meze plates include grilled lamb chops, salt cod fritters and more adventurous fare like the lamb brain fritters (maghz), though vegetarian offerings also abound. Entrées are hearty and aromatic: saffron-seared chicken, salmon with herbed feta, trout stuffed with nuts and fruits. You’ll kick yourself if you don’t leave room for the homemade saffron ice cream, best enjoyed with a glass of limited-edition port.
