Celebrated since the 11th century, Nowruz is the Persian New Year which marks the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere.
Nowruz - which will be celebrated on Sunday 21 March over two seating, one at 5:30pm and the second, a little later for the grown ups at 8:15pm - means “New Day” and is a celebration of new beginnings by wishing prosperity and welcoming the future while shedding away the past. Persians use this time to cleanse their homes and of course, it involves lots of food.
The Persian cuisine is famous for its delicious grilled meats and Shabestan grills all their kebabs over fire following authentic Persian cooking techniques. Priced at $96 per person and $46 for children, Shabestan has curated a spread of 18 dishes for guests to have a festive meal.
The 18 dishes includes Feta Cheese and Pomegranate, Shirazi Salad, Hummus, Muhamara, Borani Esfanaj, Lamb Kubideh, Chicken Masti, Tekeh Masti, Prawn and Fish Kebabs served with Sabzi Polo and Salad, Baklava and Sholezard.
