Sofreh, a Persian restaurant, has opened in Prospect Heights and it is true minimalism goals.
This Persian comfort food haven in Brooklyn has a lovely back story that makes the food even nicer. Sofreh- which is a piece of cloth that is spread on the floor, and on which dishes of food are placed at meal times in traditional Persian culture- is at the center of this authentic, home cooking style restaurant.
According to the website,
“the sofreh represents the warmth and hospitality that Persian people are known for. We embody this ethos at Sofreh, with traditional Persian dishes that represent/speak to the rich heritage and diversity of the wide region that is modern-day Iran. We want Sofreh to feel like a second home – a place where you can experience comforting food, made with love, in an inviting atmosphere.”
Menu choices like Sauteed Eggplant Dip for appetizers, Braised Lamb Shank and Persian Plum Chicken as entrees and traditional Persian ice cream in flavors like Saffron, Rosewater and Pistachio for deserts are mouthwatering.
