Azerbaijani-Iranian food

Does anyone know of an Iranian restaurant that specializes in Azerbaijani or "Iranian-Turkish" food? I did 2 years as Peace Corps in Azerbaijan proper and so am familiar with the few places in the city that do "North Azeri" but was always interested in what the South had to offer. Particularly after reading this article: http://azer.com/aiweb/categories/maga...

comparing the way that Russian and eventually soviet influence fundamentally changed the cuisine.

    I don't know the answer, but I understand that the area with the largest number of Iranian restaurants is Little Neck, Queens and Great Neck, Long Island. So try posting to the Outer Boroughs board.

      Perhaps Persepolis. 2d Avenue in the 70s.
