A New York stalwart for well over 30 years, Colbeh’s claim to fame goes beyond excellent kosher food. Not only is the restaurant’s menu top-notch by kosher standards, but this place also makes some of the best Persian food in the city. With two other locations on Long Island - one in Great Neck and the other in Roslyn - Colbeh caters to the large Iranian population that calls New York home and has landed itself a slew of other fans that crave the tender, juicy kabobs (get a king combination to try a variety of them) and the extraordinary tahdig. Make sure to slather the latter in either ghormeh sabzi (an herbed stew) or khoresh lapeh (a red split pea stew).
