Despite the diverse fine dining explosion in our area over the last few years, there still seems to be an apparent lack of Middle Eastern cuisine, whose warm, distinct saffron-scented delicacies remains unrivaled (in my personal cuisine playbook) in the culinary world.
That void, thankfully, is one restaurant smaller with the opening of Bubba Kababa, owned and operated by Mamad Nafissi and his wife, Lana, after retiring from a successful business career.
Sleek white leather booths and dark wood contrast the decorative samovars and pottery accents in a timeless dance of elegance. Many of the dishes are cooked over an open fire in the modern kitchen; guests are treated to a partially open view through the glass partitions of the chefs hard at work.
