Peacock Cafe Owners to Open New Modern Persian Restaurant Vintage78 This Spring
The new P Street eatery from brothers and co-owners Chef Maziar Farivar and Shahab Farivar will offer innovative new spins on classic dishes  

Washington, D.C. (April 19, 2019) -- The owners of beloved Georgetown mainstay Peacock Cafe are excited to announce the debut of their new modern Persian restaurant, Vintage78, opening this spring (2100 P Street NW).

Co-owners and brothers Chef Maziar Farivar and Shahab Farivar are finally bringing the flavors of their native Iran in a first-of-its-kind in Washington Persian restaurant boasting a modern setting and a full-service wine and bar program.

“After being invited to cook Norouz (Persian New Year) dinner twice at the James Beard House and having the State Department tap me to join the Diplomatic Culinary Partnership as well as the American Chef Corps certainly inspired me to finally open my own Persian restaurant,” says Chef Farivar.

Vintage78 -- named for the year the brothers came to the United States -- will offer a full menu of authentic flavors, ingredients and dishes, such as dolme (stuffed vegetables), kufteh (meatballs) and a variety of khoresh, a traditional Persian-style stew served with rice.

Chef Farivar will also put his own upscale spin on the standard rice-and-kabob meal, using the highest quality meats and presenting the dish with an “upside down” rice timbale featuring a golden crust saffron yogurt bottom for a bit of panache.

The new restaurant’s decor will also be a mix of the traditional and the modern, with a homey, lived-in feel accented with glass, chrome and repurposed wood sourced from a turn-of-the-century house built in 1908.

The 3,000-square-foot venue seats 75 guests in the dining room (including 25 in the private dining room) and about 28 guests at the bar and in the bar area.

“We’ve been restaurant owners for nearly 30 years and have always wanted to open a Persian venue,” says Shahab. “So we finally decided as established owners that it was time to tap into our heritage and commit to promoting modern, innovative Persian cuisine.”

Vintage78 will be open Monday-Sunday for weekday lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. For more information, visit www.vintage78dc.com.
