This woman-owned Iranian and Persian spot is only open for breakfast and lunch, and although you can pop in for a quick coffee in the morning, you should make a reservation for their set lunch service, which includes your choice of three dishes and a drink.

Banibanoo cooks up about 15-20 different dishes, all of which you can look over in their glass case while you listen to the staff give you a quick rundown of the choices. We love the sweet and savory rice with saffron, lentils, raisins, mini-meatballs, dates, and fried onion, and the velvety sweet potatoes with red onion, yogurt, and pomegranate.
