Popular with Middle Eastern cabbies, Rose goes beyond kebabs with an array of Persian dips and stews. You can get food to go or eat in the simple dining room. We like gheymeh—lentils, onions, and beef steeped in a tomatoey broth—and kashk-o-bademjan, a sweet and smoky dip of eggplant, cumin, and whipped yogurt. And though tender lamb shank stands out, Cornish-game-hen and kubbideh (spiced ground meat) kebabs are delicious, too.
