[06/12/2018 Edit: the opening was delayed from the original expected date of May 20 — it is now expected to open June 15.]
Scottsdale-based Persian restaurant Persian Room announced its second location is expected to open in Tucson on Friday, June 15.
Brother-and-sister team Nasser and Farideh Nikkhahmanesh will serve as co-owners and executive chefs.
The 5,600-square-foot space at 9290 N. Thornydale Rd. can seat about 175, with the possibility of expanding to add another 3,500 square feet to accommodate another 250 guests for dining and banquet functions.
“What makes Persian Room more unique is the quality of our food, fresh-baked bread, and the value we bring to the table with generous portions,” Nasser said, “plus we create an ambiance that is more upscale and welcoming to our guests.” The dishes are made fresh on a daily basis, he added.
The Tucson location’s menu will be exactly the same as the menu at the original location. The Persian Room will be the only operating Persian restaurant in Tucson at the time of this publication.
Operating hours will be 11 a.m. – 9:30 p.m. Sunday – Thursday, 11 a.m. – 10:30 p.m. Friday – Saturday. Interested applicants are encouraged to apply in person at 9290 N. Thornydale Rd.
The Persian Room will open at 9290 N. Thornydale Rd. For more information on the original Scottsdale location, visit persianroom.com.
