Shamshiri Grill

From the complimentary warm pita with fresh mint, radishes, and onion to the massive beef shawarma platter with saffron-speckled rice and choice of salad (the tabbouleh is a winner), this notable Persian spot is all about abundance and elegance. A trickling indoor fountain and a lovely patio help set the mood;
so does the exotic shirin polo—rice with almonds, pistachios, orange peel, carrots, and a saffron-marmalade sauce.
