Sabzi - East Arlington - Persian

Sabzi's (which inhabits the space formerly occupied by Prose) has opened - the owner described it as a soft opening, with not a lot of fanfare. They do dinner service only, and are closed on Monday.

Menu is 1 page, about 10 app selections - a salad, several dips, frittata, etc. We had a tomato/cucumberish salad and an eggplant/carmelized onion dip that were both very good.

Entrees are skewered flame cooked meats - I had an entree with two skewers of beef, my wife a beef and chicken. Every entree is served with grilled tomatoes and saffron rice. The beef was very taste, chicken as well. Maybe the chicken was a tad overcooked, but it was a fine point and perhaps just me trying to be a bit picky.

At present, there aren't any vegetarian entrees, but the owner says they will be adding those soon. They are still getting their operations going, having only been open briefly, so I think they want a shorter menu at present.

Service was good and friendly. Tab was $60 including tip for 2 apps, 2 entrees and 2 glasses of wine. The restaurant looked like it could seat 20-25 ppl.

The ambiance is def more comfortable than Prose was - the window dressing and the lighting make it a far more comfortable place to sit and eat.
