Type: Mediterranean, Afghan, Vegetarian Price range: $$ (Moderate) Description:

Husband and wife team Ali and Nazifa Rahimi have been serving dishes that are a fusion of Afghani and Mediterranean cuisines for nearly a dozen years. Diners can start with appetizers such as aushak -- a dumpling filled with leeks, served with a meat sauce and yogurt dressing, or "Afghani Delight" -- a sampler of other starters. A lamb dish, quabili palaw, served on the bone over basmati rice pilaf that's sprinkled with pistachios, almonds and raisins, is a favorite of regulars.

Hours: 11:30 am-10 p.m.: Sun-Thurs. 11:30 a.m.-11 p.m.: Fri.-Sat. Reservations: Accepted
