Tonight begins Norooz, the Persian New Year. It's a holiday based on the renewal of life, and so the traditional foods involve new sprouts of herbs--traditionally planted just for the New Year--and fish from the newly free-flowing rivers. While there are a few Persian restaurants in OC, this year there's a chance to celebrate a little more intimately.
Hidden Dinner, the underground pop-up restaurant that is the brainchild of Anahita Naderi, Betty Lang, and Justin Veiga, will be celebrating Norooz this Sunday, March 25, with a menu of home-style Persian dishes from Naderi's family recipes.
They won't tell people who reserve where it is until two days before, of course, but we'll give you a hint: it's in South County, further south than Hidden Dinner has ever ventured. To sign up to get more information, join the e-mail list at hiddendinner.com
