    Try asking at Gazala Place.

    Israeli/Druse, not Persian, but the chef does make pastries.

    Gazala Place
    709 9th Ave, New York, NY 10019

        The tastiest baklava I've ever had outside the Middle East/Turkey is available in Brooklyn at a Turkish bakery/cafe.

        1985 Coney Island Ave.
        Brooklyn, NY 11223
        (718) 645-1822

        It's way out in Midwood, Brooklyn, but very well worth the trip. They can accommodate large quantity orders.

          Also in Brooklyn, not far from Gulluoglu, is Mansouras, on Kings Highway betw E 2nd & E 3rd. Closed Saturdays, open Sundays. They make a range of Mid East pastries, quite good.
