Incredibly delicious!! I felt so lucky to be tasting her amazing food, that you can tell it's made by a professional. The Mealshare happened in a big space, so 15 people or so gathered together. It was a fantastic evening.

Louisa is a gracious host, and her flavors are Persian and fantastic! The feta-and-herb platter was delicious, and her dessert was incredible. She had a different take on traditional khoresht-e karafs and zereshk polo, which were also yummy. Would go to another dinner hosted by Louisa any day!

The meal last evening was, in a word, gracious. If the saffron pilaf with goat stew and yogurt was my last meal, I'd go before God with a happy belly. The company around the table was everything one could hope for, and thanks to Hunter and his partners for opening up their place. Sincerely, Frank Morris
