When I stopped by the Middle East Market to pick up some flatbread today, they had some yellow slips of paper up front advertising Persian dinners that they'll be doing on Friday nights starting this coming Friday (June 11th). The woman at the register told me that for the first dinner they'd be serving "ghormeh sabzi," which she explained was a sort of stew with vegetables and lamb, served over rice. Maybe someone else more familiar with the cuisine could elaborate further?
Dinner will be served that Friday from around 5:00 until 8:00 (when they close). They only have that small dining area in the back of the store, so I don't know how much of a turnout they're expecting. But I'm hoping to check it out -- and if I don't get a chance to this week, hopefully someone else will (and report back, of course).
I forgot to ask about the price. In any case, all their breads and kabobs are great (and a good value), so I'd expect them to do a good job with these dinners too.
