I read the revew about Shalizar in the New Yorker magazine (sept 1 edition) , the author is compairing 2 different worlds: Shalizar and Ravagh. I have been in both places and not only once , i can say that Ravahg is more traditional persian cuisine, close to what you can have in Iran. My parents are persian, so i know what is real taste of Gorme Sabzi and barg. But don't forget that we are in New York, not in Iran. Shalizar iz more fancy, more Americanized place ( trying to be ,) cause it is just open couple of months ago. Shalizar has fancy coctails,i have been there couple of times, and i always get the delicious mojito, the tabule has hommade taste, the lamb shank is melting in your moth .The pakistani manager keep approaching the table with the question if the food is good. It is goog......I really recommend

I was in the mood for Middle Easter so I thought that we'd try this. It took 30 minutes for them to give us menus, they placed our wine away from the table in a bucket on the other side of the restaurant. The food was good but given it's coupled with the unattentive service, I wouldn't return.

The food is fresh and tasty. Excellent appetizers and adequate choices of entrees. Nice presentation.. Service is pleasant and attentive.... Modestly priced. Good value for your dollar which is rare these days

Went here after a visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Very conveniently located. It had only been open for 2 weeks, so was not serving any liquor yet, but the waiter pointed out a liquor store across the street and allowed the customers to bring their own. Hummus was delicious, lamb shank main course was amazing. Desserts were delicious and uniqe. We sat next to the windows, so live jazz music would trickle in from next door. Unbelievably attentive, warm, and friendly staff. Did not feel rushed at all. Highly recommend it!

I just tried this brand new spot last night. It is hard to find good Persian food in NYC, and Shalizar makes it easier. If you are unfamiliar with Persian food, then definitely check it out - similar to other mid-eastern cusines, with its own unique flavors. This place is a sibling of the nearby Persepolis, which is excellent, especially since it moved to its new location over a year ago. Shalizar is still working out some kinks - no wine yet and a few menu items not available - but it should be fine over time. There are some menus similarities to Beyoglu across the street, which always gets praise that I can't understand. Given time, I think Shalizar will put it to shame.
