Known for their Prospect Street favorite for hospitality and cuisine, brothers chef Maziar Farivar and Shahab Farivar of Peacock Cafe officially opened the doors of their latest venture at 2100 P St. NW on Aug. 28 — Vintage78.
The modern Persian restaurant near Dupont Circle is named after 1978, the year the Farivars came to the United States from Iran. Vintage78 is unique, as the Farivars note, in that it “boasts a modern Persian setting and full-service wine and bar program, all in celebration of the flavors of Iran.”
Menu highlights include a variety of authentic entrees and sides, such as grilled grape leaf dolme (vegetarian grape leaf rolls served over yogurt with cucumber and topped with feta, basil and 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.
