The food at Alborz does not pretend to be rustic or humble. It does not hunch bashfully on the plate but vamps, festooned with dazzling yogurt lightning-bolts, rubied with scarlet barberries, studded with nuts. Its silken kashk bademjan is a melt-in-the-mouth grilled-eggplant appetizer scattered with candylike crushed almonds, lolling in a reflecting pool of high-quality olive oil. Alongside house-specialty kebabs — some of which boast whole Cornish game hens — rise reefs of majestically fluffy, saffron-tinted, baked basmati rice that retains its integrity in the mouth, grain by perfectly hydrated grain. Vegetarians can feast on appetizers, veggie kebabs, and fessenjoon: a remarkable, arguably miraculous, walnut-and-pomegranate stew.
