Authentic Persian and Mediterranean cuisine awaits diners at Reza’s, a small local chain of four restaurants. At this Andersonville location, the dining room is set in a former microbrewery with high ceilings, exposed brick, and widely spaced tables that are ideal for date night. On warm days, the floor-to-ceiling windows at the front of the restaurant are left open, creating a bright, airy environment. The expansive menu can be overwhelming, but highlights include the chicken koubideh kebab, ghormeh sabzi (vegetable beef stew), and dill rice. For a sampling of traditional favorites, opt for the affordable lunchtime buffet available on weekdays.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
