You might not expect a former Café Boulud captain from Bangladesh to own a Persian restaurant. Parvez Eliaas actually owns two. His Iranian partner, Kaz Bayati, opened Persepolis on the Upper East Side in 1991, and two debuted Shalezeh seven blocks north. As at Persepolis, the menu features such traditional fare as lamb and beef kebabs, characteristically sweet-and-sour stews, and tasting trios of eggplant appetizers, yogurt spreads, and Persian salads. Besides a few new menu additions like ash-e-reshteh, a Persian green-vegetable soup with noodles, the slightly more upscale Shalezeh  also offers thematic cocktails, like pomegranate martinis and mojitos, at an expanded bar area.
