Today’s post is a shout-out to one of our favorite Greek restaurants in the U.S., Delphi Greek in Westwood (Los Angeles, California).
It’s not one of our favorites just because the food is delicious and very reasonably priced.
It’s not one of our favorites just because the wine list is a veritable temple to Boutari.
It’s not one of our favorites just because the owner searches all over the world to complete his “library” of Boutari wines.
No, it’s because the simpatico owner Roozbeh Farahanipour is an Iranian freedom fighter who uses his office at the restaurant as his headquarters in his virtual campaign to fight for the Iranian people’s freedom. Roozbeh is one of the nicest people in the business that we know and it’s remarkable to think that he’s been imprisoned in Iran, he’s been tortured, and that every day he continues to serve up great Greek cuisine with a smile for the many UCLA students who live in his neighborhood.
