FYI: Happy Persian New Year
Like us, you probably did not realize we’re entering Persian New Years season.
The holiday — also known as Norouz — begins on March 20th and lasts a whopping 13 days!
Like all things celebratory, Norouz is all about food (as seen above), including kookoo sabzi — an herbs and vegetable souffle and the very Zone-unfriendly reshteh Polo: rice cooked with noodles.
The five-course/one-night-only Norouz blowout is happening this Wednesday March 18 — where Zare will wow diners with inventive-yet-traditional dishes such as smoked trout with cucumber “linguine” paired with crisp Greek white wines.
