New Persian restaurant in Morristown

bropaul | Sep 21, 201005:23 PM     4

A couple of weeks ago I noticed the sign for a persian restaurant on Speedwell Ave. Well, since I was going to the movies in Headquarters Plaza, I decided to give it a try. My first impressions were quite favorable. Since I know nothing about Persian cuisine, I asked for help. I was a little put off when I was steered towards some mainstream middle eastern favorites - stuffed grape leaves, hummus and kebabs, but I persisted. I ended up trying the herb frittata - a very green wedge that was aromatic and tasty, served with some awesome pickled red cabbage. For my entree I had a stew of eggplant, beef, lentils and tomato served with basmati rice. It was very good. The dried lemon in the stew was a first and caught me off guard. There was a young server who was obviously unfamiliar with the cuisine, but there was also a couple, whom I presumed to be the owners, taking good care of the diners. I want to go back and try a few more dishes. It is BYOB and my bill was only $21. Not much seafood, but plenty of vegetarian options.

Marjan Persian Grill, 84 Speedwell Ave, Morristown, NJ - Across from the Hyatt.
