The overwhelming response by fans of Lazziz Persian restaurant, including their regular customer Ed King, have convinced the owners to keep the place open for now. As we reported last week they had planned to shut down on Sunday. Now they will keep the doors open and hopefully have a chance for all that good will to turn into more business. We congratulate them on the decision and hope they succeed. Ed is probably weeping somewhere as he contemplates the Koubideh. And now that I think about it that koubideh is pretty darn good.
Join us on this quest for the best ethnic, neighborhood and specialty restaurants in Nashville and Tennessee. We look for unassuming mom and pop joints where the food and the people are the main attractions. We give you two perspectives: Eric is the Meat Eater and Katie is the Veggie Eater, a Pesco-lacto-ovo vegetarian (which means she eats eggs, cheese and occasionally fish, but never meat). We base reviews on two anonymous visits and always pay our own way. We keep old reviews up so that readers can scout out restaurants. However, we stress that a review is a moment in time and the restaurant could have become better or worse or even changed management since we last reviewed. If you see a review that you think is off the mark, or no longer valid, please let us know and we will consider a revisit for an update.
