Visiting SF - Helmand?

Ginger9 | Jan 21, 2011 07:25 PM

i've tried a Helmand restaurant in Baltimore, MD and another in Cambridge, MA while traveling for work. Both were excellent and I heard both are under common ownership, possibly by a relative of Karzai. Is the SF Helmand part of the same group? I haven't been back to the DC or Boston areas recently, but would like to try the one in SF if it's as good! I remember excellent grilled lamb, chive dumplings (aushak), braised pumpkin with tangy yogurt and meat sauce with coriander, and a great vegetarian soup (aush) at the Baltimore location especially because I ate there more often.
