Wine lovers rejoice! On March 6, popular Persian-Mediterranean restaurant Shiraz Kitchen opened a wine bar adjacent to its dining space, and it’s got the makings of a relaxed, delectable, and fun evening out.
“We have 105 labels and six very delicious signature drinks,” says owner Reza Parhizkaran. “We have so many good appetizers, or meze, which are unknown.
Parhizkaran, who transformed part of the food market next to Shiraz into the wine bar, says that patrons of a French or Italian restaurant know what to expect at those types of establishments.
When you come to me…you think everything is kebab. Actually, everything is not,” he says, mentioning mast-o-bademjoon, a dish of eggplant topped with thick, spiced yoghurt and seasonings. “It’s so good. You die for it.”
