The new place next to Linda's Cafe is good. The Persian food is good, and we enjoyed the lamb chops ( succulent and tenderest I've ever had, in fact) and the keema kabob. The mom and daughter team are really aiming to please, and are also offering Persian stews.
Please check them out. We enjoyed it, and they are open later than many places in Arlington. WE LIKED THEIR KABOB BETTER THAN RAVI KABOB -- more tender, juicy and flavorful. The bread is really good and fresh (and large). THEIR GREEN YOGURT SAUCE ALONE IS WORTH THE TRIP -- DRINKABLE! The chick peas are not as good as Ravi, but are more subtle -- my opinion. Their eggplant was good, but the spices are low-key. They aim for local, sustainable produce. Their rice is OK, but not as good as Amoo's. (It was better the next day, frankly).
The environment is super clean, cheerful, chic and spotless -- including the bathrooms. It is all tastefully done -- and definitely a surprise to what you'd expect. (They have transformed this place into a NICE SPACE). Please go and see how you like it. We were well pleased. They also have a couple of outdoor tables, so you can enjoy the good weather.
As of now, their coffee and cardamom tea are free.
