Today’s lunch spot suggestion for our real estate students is Caspian: a Persian restaurant just a few blocks from Rockwell, tucked away amidst several high-end car dealerships here in Bellevue. Originally located in Seattle, Caspian moved to Bellevue in April 2011. It’s a pleasant, nicely decorated space—a welcome addition to the neighborhood. We’re just sorry it took us so long to try it out!
Caspian’s lunch menu includes soups, salads, beef, chicken, and lamb kabob plates and sandwiches, and a variety of appetizers. We tried the chicken kabob and ground beef kabob plates (served with hummus, salad, and rice) and both were delicious. We’re already thinking about what we’ll order next time: perhaps the oven-baked lamb sandwich, dolmas (stuffed grape leaves), or the Cornish game hen? (Also interesting: when we peeked at Caspian’s dinner menu, which includes quite a few tasty-sounding items, like braised lamb shank, chicken-pomegranate molasses stew, and a beef-herb stew—we noticed that the restaurant features belly dancing performances every Saturday night!)
Caspian is located just a few blocks from Rockwell, at 1806 136th Pl. NE Bellevue, WA 98005. (Phone: 425-747-9500; website: www.caspianbellevue.com)
