Parsian Azadi Hotel
The five-star Parsian Azadi Hotel has hosted everyone from foreign leaders to international soccer teams. It towers above neighboring buildings in northern Tehran, giving its rooms some of the best views in the city. While the four restaurants allow guests plenty of dining options, Bice Restaurant in particular shouldn’t be missed. Beginning modestly in Milan in 1926, Bice soon spread to major cities all around the world and opened in Tehran with the intention of sharing authentic Italian cuisine and friendly, professional service in a chic, European ambiance. Try the favorites—beef carpaccio and spaghetti with shrimp, or order the mushroom risotto which is served in its very own parmesan wheel! There may be a lot of Italian restaurants in Tehran, but no one does it like Bice.
