A little bit of Atlanta: Persepolis

I live in Atlanta, GA.   It’s a great city, big enough to have plenty of Art and culture but small enough to take on and really get to know.  It doesn’t have everything (most disappointingly it has no large body of water closer than Lake Lanier which is about an hour away) but I wanted to share a few of my favorite places here for other Atliens or future visitors.  Today, that’s one of my favorite restaurant ever: Persepolis.  I’m headed there tonight for dinner and I’m already torn about what to get because it’s all so amazingly tasty!

When Zach and I were planning our wedding, we decided we wanted to have a really fun rehearsal dinner.  We had visited another Atlanta favorite, Nicola’s, for Valentine ’s Day and had so much fun that we had even considered having the rehearsal dinner there, despite being really far away from the wedding site.  Nicola’s is owned by Nicola himself who hires belly dancers and likes to dance himself and then make the whole restaurant get up and dance with him.  We didn’t want to drive that far from our wedding site, but we decided to try to find a similar experience for our friends and family nearby.  We searched for belly dancing in Roswell and found Persepolis on Google.  We called and set up a time to look at the restaurant, try the food, and get a quote for a group dinner.

Persepolis is small, quiet at dinner time, and while the belly dancing was good, no one forces you up to join them.  We weren’t sure what to expect but the moment we tasted the food, we were sold.  It’s unbelievable!!!  Everything we ate was amazing.  We put down a deposit that night and had a wonderful time with our friends and family at our rehearsal dinner.  We live on the other side of town so we don’t get to go too often but it’s always a treat when we do and tonight, for my brother-in-law’s birthday, he’s requested to go to the place where we went for our rehearsal dinner.  I can’t wait!!!
