The upscale Persian restaurant Rumi's Kitchen opened Oct. 16 in an Uptown mixed-use development at 1801 Post Oak Blvd., Ste. 120, Houston.

The eatery specializes in traditional Persian cuisine with Middle Eastern influences. Other offerings include a Persian-themed cocktail program with options such as the Sabzi Tonica, made with dragoncello and Mediterranean tonic, as well as the Maydan, made with Persian tea and saffron. Rumi's will also offer jeweled rice, a Persian dish made with butter and spices, named for its golden color.

The eatery can seat 170 guests in its bar and dining areas. A private dining area can also hold up to 40 people.
