Ravagh Persian Grill
Where we've featured it
The Persian stews at Ravagh are ideal for nights that make you wish you owned scented candles and a light dimmer. The huge portions of lamb shank stew or chicken in pomegranate sauce are fantastic, and they’re likely to make you fall asleep on your couch before you get through the opening credits of whatever movie you finally get around to watching.
Although their East Village location closed, this Persian restaurant is still accepting takeout and delivery orders at their Midtown and UES spots. They serve a bunch of perfectly cooked lamb kebabs, and meaty stews like ghormeh sabzi (with herbs, beans, and beef) and khoresh fesenjan (with chicken, walnuts, and pomegranate). If you haven’t been cooking a lot of meat at home, consider this date night an opportunity to meat-splurge on some delicious chicken, lamb, or beef.
