Hey, Doc -
I noticed your post about Iranian/Persian food on the Int'l Board and was intrigued to note that you hadn't had it before. It's all over California (most notably in Tehrangeles, the Westwood neighborhood of L.A.), but I thought to myself, "hmmm...maybe there are some Iranians in New Orleans who have opened restaurants..." Sure enough:
Creole Kosher Kitchen
115 Chartres Street New Orleans, LA 70130
The tastes of New Orleans without guilt. Creole Kosher Kitchen offers creole and vegetarian specials in addition to delicious Persian and middle-eastern cuisine.
And I've linked a story below on another really interesting sounding one. Soul food by Iranians! I've got to come to your fair city.
