Cheap Eats 2018: Amoo’s Restaurant

At first glance, the menu at this BYOB Persian kebab house might give you sticker shock. While a $30 bison kebab will bust the budget, know that all plates are generous and shareable—and most are far more affordable. Bring pals and dig into chimichurri-painted chicken, ground-beef skewers, and perfectly blistered veggies, all alongside crisp flatbread and mountains of elaborately spiced rice. If you’re up for splurging, do it on the pomegranate-soaked lamb kebab. Also good: Eggplant dip; shirazi salad; shirin polo (rice with carrots and nuts); fesenjan (pomegranate-chicken stew).
