Lamb fat — skewered and seared, or minced with onion, then wrapped in dough that's baked or fried — is the eternal temptation at this expansive kosher restaurant. But even in Tajikistan, homeland of the owners, lamb is not the be-all and end-all. Order up a salad, or several: intensely carrotty morkovcha, olive-strewn Cheburechnaya salad, tomato-and-onion achikchuk. Palate refreshed, you'll find other carnivorous pleasures to consider. The beef skirt kebab, which I'd never tried until my most recent visit, is particularly juicy.
