Best of Boston

1997 Best Persian Restaurant

Lala Rokh

Authentic, exquisite Persian food in an intimate warren of rooms on Beacon Hill. Chef Azita Bina-Seibel works wonders with rose petals, pomegranate seeds, barberries, and dill—just a few of the flavors adorning this serendipitous cuisine. Try the tender veal and lentils and be sure to leave room for saffron-and-rosewater-scented ice cream studded with pistachios.
