THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Kasara Restaurant Review

: The historical building, a grand salon in a former incarnation, boasts a giant fireplace, wood bar, large street-facing windows and a formal brass chandelier. All this makes for a dramatic setting where locals gobble down delightful, but casual, Persian delicacies. Hummus and baba ghanouj warm up the palate for more intriguing starters. Kashk mixes sautéed eggplant with a touch of sour cream, walnuts, fried onions and mint. Freshly rolled and steamed dolmeh put store-bought siblings to shame. Kabobs are the big draw for dinner, from juicy chicken to tender lamb dripping with marinades of olive oil, lemon juice and spices. Still regional dishes like fesenjun (chicken in a silky walnut and pomegranate sauce) and moussaka (a layered casserole of eggplant and ground beef topped with creamy béchamel sauce) are some of the best in the city. Syrupy and strong Turkish coffee is a perfect ending. Live music from Russian folk bands infuses the atmosphere on the weekends and belly dancing can be seen on most nights.
