If you’re looking for the kind of meal that will make you wax poetic for weeks after it’s over, Nargis is a great option, and they have a large, covered outdoor seating area that’s pleasant to eat in, even during a downpour. Portions are large, so come with friends and order accordingly. Start your Uzbek feast with a pitcher of homemade kompot, a not-too-sweet fruit drink, one of their many salads, and an order of non, a thick, fluffy round bread that’s perfect for sharing. Pumpkin manti is a must, with a creamy, savory filling and nearly-translucent skin that rival even the best manti down in Brighton Beach. To get the full experience, order a whole fish and the mixed grill kebab platter - both are cooked over a charcoal grill, and you can taste it. The mixed grill platter alone is enough to feed three or four people who’ve been out all day, so it’s worth trying to resist ordering one of everything from the list of appetizers. And trust me, you’ll want to.
