Persian

Kasra is a Persian grill featuring the authentic dishes of the region. Starters here include the classic hummus, kashka bademjan which is a special eggplant dip, lentil soup, roasted garlic and jalapeño and a special herb plate showcasing the best herbs and spices unique to Persian culinary tradition.Kasra's main menu is split between Persian specialties and kabob entrées. The Persian specialties include lamb shank zeresh polo with chicken and a vegetarian plate for diners who choose to eat meatless. Kebabs, however, are arguably the most popular Persian dish to make its way to the Unites States. Kasra features many different recipes of this iconic meal, including beef, chicken, lamb and shrimp versions. Each one is slow cooked over an open flame alongside fresh vegetables gathered from local producers and farmers.
