Prospect Heights has a new Persian restaurant called Sofreh, named after a traditional fabric used as a backdrop for food displays at festive celebrations. The restaurant at 75 St. Marks Ave. was named by chef Nasim Alikhani, who came from Iran to New York in 1983, according to Eater

Among the standout items are an eggplant and yogurt dip with home-baked bread, lamb patties with yellow lentil and turmeric, meatballs with sour cherries and pistachios, and plum chicken with saffron, barberries and rice. Many Persian desserts, Eater said, are made with rosewater; and this is reflected in dishes served at the restaurant that include rosewater sorbet, rosewater ice cream and black tea infused with cardamom and rose. Sofreh is open nights, starting at 6 p.m., except for Mondays.
