If we made a Hit List for every neighborhood, Sofreh would probably make the one for Prospect Heights. It’s a Persian place where you can get solid, somewhat pricey things like roasted eggplant, little meatballs with sour cherries, and a big lamb shank. The restaurant has a long, narrow space with white brick walls and high ceilings, and it’s nice enough for a semi-important date or a night out with friends. You might not fantasize about this place once you leave, but you should leave happy.
