Included In

Walk past the Ravagh Persian Grill on 1st Avenue (there are two other locations), and there’s a good chance you’ll see a relatively empty restaurant space. Don’t be deterred. This is a great place to come when you want a low-key dinner involving perfectly-grilled kebabs, rice, and persian stews like ghormeh sabzi (with herbs, beans, and beef) and khoresh fesenjan (with chicken, walnuts, and pomegranate). The portions are large, the setting is tranquil, and it’s a great place to treat like an extension of your living room.
