42. Rumi’s Kitchen


50 Best Restaurants in AtlantaFamilies flock to Ali Mesghali’s lavish Persian restaurant road for good reason. The setting is stunning, flooded with natural light and staged against a turquoise-tiled open kitchen that curves along the back wall. The food, too, exudes freshness, like the bowl of tarragon and spearmint leaves, which diners wrap around fresh-cut radishes, feta, and walnuts. The deep tandoor oven is the kitchen’s centerpiece, charring beef and lamb kebabs perfumed with saffron and turmeric. To accompany the menu’s protein-heavy main courses: mountains of buttery basmati rice flecked with orange zest and pistachios.
