David Koresh's Last Meal - 2007
The first time I ate in a Persian restaurant, it struck me as odd that the generic term for stew was nearly the same as that of a gun-toting Christian cultist. Accordingly, this feature fulfills a dream of ours to see David Koresh eating a Persian koresht. And, as a tourist to New York, he'll be glad to hear that the Persian restaurant Colbeh is only a stone's throw from Times Square, so maybe he could take in a Broadway show afterward. The koresht we'd pick for him is ghormeh sabzi—beef braised with kidney beans, fenugreek, leeks, parsley, and dried lime.
