Make sure you get the chicken kebab with the bone in (joujeh kebab chelo) at Colbeh, a kosher Iranian restaurant near Times Square popular with expatriate carpet merchants from Tehran, and Russian Jews too. The kebabs are slicked with saffron-tinted yogurt before being charcoal grilled, which leaves them moist and supremely flavorful. The dining room is an oasis of retro comfort; other things you should consider include baghali polo (green pilaf with baby limas beans) and ghormeh sabzi (a stew braising beef with kidney beans, fenugreek, leeks, parsley, and dried limes).
