Persian food is delicious and healthy option when you’re avoiding the big B (bread). Start your meal with a traditional appetizer of Dolmeh- minced beef, rice, mild herbs, grape leaves with sweet & sour pomegranate sauce. For the main course, we recommend the Shish Kabob with filet mignon, bell pepper, onion, saffron basmati rice. (You can always leave off the rice if it’s not your tradition to consume during Passover.)
If you can surpass the homemade pasta and homemade pizza from Antico next door, go grab a bowl of the Sorrento Lemon chicken with potatoes from Gio’s. The chicken is outstanding- just make sure to request no bread on the side.
