Shalizar (CLOSED)

Restaurants, Persian Upper East Side

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The pearls-and-cufflinks crowd that chooses Shalizar’s neighbor, Brasserie Julien, over a dinner at this lovely Persian restaurant have no idea what they’re missing. On a recent Friday night, this top-notch eatery held fewer than ten customers (a real shame). For these lucky few, the rewards were plenty. Smoky eggplant mizra was a thick, garlicky puree served with hot bread and nutty tahini. We also savored shredded chicken in a pomegranate-and-walnut stew (called fesenjan) and a juicy lamb kebab, both served on ecstacy-inducing basmati rice with lentils, saffron and golden raisins. Get in here before the squares catch on.
