Nasim Alikhani, the owner of Prospect Heights’ newest Persian eatery, found her inspiration in the home-cooked meals of her childhood in Tehran, Iran. The restaurant even takes its name Sofreh from the word for a specific type of Iranian tablecloth.

The food follows in the theme of a family dinner: shared plates, complete with freshly made yogurt and fluffy basmati rice. Adam Platt of Grub Street described the menu as peppered with exotic combinations “mingled with touches of locally grown largesse.”

The menu includes creative items like honey-roasted beets, filleted sea bass with thick tamarind sauce and burger-shaped beef kebabs with pomegranate sauce. Platt described the desserts as uniformly “delicious,” highlighting a yogurt specialty that featured “a kind of elemental marmalade that tasted like it came from a time before candies and pastries were invented, when the absolute height of luxury was an orange picked from your own garden.”

Sofreh is located at 75 St. Marks Ave. near Flatbush Avenue and is open for dinner Tuesday through Sunday evenings.
