$$$$Perfect For:Big GroupsCasual Weeknight DinnerDinner with the Parents

Ravagh Persian Grill on 1st Avenue makes some of our favorite Persian food in the city, including perfectly-grilled kebabs and stews like chunky, bean-laden ghormeh sabzi and khoresh fesenjan served with crushed walnuts. Rely on this casual two-story restaurant any time you’re looking for a low-key, rice-forward, and comforting meal, since the portions are large and the setting stays fairly quiet.
