Chicago is teeming with ethnic restaurants, but until recently, there seemed to be a dearth of authentic Persian restaurants. Husband-and-wife team Goly and Azim Nassiri-Masouleh named the quaint Rogers Park neighborhood restaurant after the Northern Iran region they are from. The small menu consists of fresh herbs sprinkled on succulent kabobs and a variety of veggie dishes. Entrees are priced under $10 and come with soup and a massive heap of rice. Persian tunes play in the background while customers sip on their BYOB of choice.
