From a press release:
“Vintage78, the new modern Persian restaurant from the proprietors of Georgetown favorite Peacock Cafe, will officially open its doors for dinner service on Wednesday, August 28.
The first of its kind in Washington, Vintage78 (2100 P Street NW) boasts a modern Persian setting and full-service wine and bar program, all in celebration of the flavors of Iran.
Native Iranian brothers Chef Maziar Farivar and Shahab Farivar named their new venture after the year they came to the United States — 1978 — and are thrilled to introduce their adopted hometown of D.C. to traditional Persian dishes with a twist.
Menu highlights include a variety of authentic entrees and sides, such as grilled grape leaf dolme (vegetarian grape leaf rolls served over yogurt-cucumber and topped with feta, basil, olive oil), Albaloo Pola Ba Morgh (pomegranate glazed roasted chicken served with a sour cherry basmati rice blend) and a variety of khoresh, a traditional Persian-style stew served with rice.
