I’m very excited this week because we’ve been trying out different brands of lavash bread, and nothing has been quite perfect. Tonight, someone is bringing us barbari and lavash from Mt Ararat Bakery in Long Island, it’s supposed to be amazing.
The person bringing the bread is a man named Vahid who came to the 3rd or 4th night of the pop-up, and is so passionate about this bread that he is driving it here himself from Long Island! We’ll be serving it on the fresh herb platter and with the much loved jigar, lamb’s liver kebab. See you tonight!
As usual, we’re at Porsena Extra Bar, 21 E. 7th Street in Manhattan, between 2nd and 3rd. We serve from 5:30-10 pm, no reservations. Any questions about seating, call Porsena at 212 228 4923.
