Authentic Middle Eastern cuisine is what you'll find at Cafe Izmir, voted one of the "100 Best Restaurants in Dallas." The Nazari family maintains a high standard of excellent service and exotic cuisine. Part of the Izmir experience is the anticipation of what meal you will be served. The only decision you'll need to make is the type of meat you prefer, or you can go vegetarian. You might want to make reservations, since this place can get pretty crowded. Izmir provides an upscale, casual environment that highlights the sights and aromas of the Iranian culture. Several dining tables are available for large groups, as well as a patio for outdoorsy types. The eclectic crowd is a source of entertainment in itself. If you're not adventurous enough to let the cook create your meal, take baby steps and start with Tuesday Tapas Night, when you can choose from a wide variety of Middle Eastern appetizers.
