Dining Pick of the Week: Persian Village



4255 S. Durango Drive, south of Flamingo Road, 702-722-6767

Garnik Khachikian invites you to Persian Village for dinner in a pleasant dining room with attentive service and good food. "We’ve been open seven months for lunch and dinner, and many new customers have joined the many who followed us from the east side of town," Khachikian said. The reasonably priced menu succeeds with its Mediterranean and Persian dishes enhanced with a variety of spices and herbs. Entrees are served with basmati rice and charbroiled tomato and include chicken breast kebab, marinated charbroiled Cornish hen, lamb shank in house tomato sauce, chicken koobideh (strips of ground boneless chicken), filet kebab with onions and bell peppers, beef koobideh and kebab barg, a marinated charbroiled filet. Always ask about the fish of the day. Persian stews are the house specialty and feature fesenjon (pomegranate sauce, walnuts, chicken) and ghormeh sabzi with sautéed vegetables, dried limes, kidney beans and beef. All stews can be served vegetarian. Among the appetizers are hummus, grape leaves with rice, tarragon, split peas, green onions, basil and parsley, barley soup, Persian salad (chopped cucumber, tomatoes, parsley, onion) and Greek salad. Entrees begin at $11.99. Persian Village is open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. – Jack Bulavsky
