Ariana’s Grand


Ariana’s relocation from busy Brighton Avenue to the new Charlesview mixed-use building on the other side of Allston took about six months longer than expected, but the wait for the Afghan restaurant’s reopening was well worth it. The bigger, more polished space befits the kitchen’s elegant dishes, such as aushak, the delicate, almost translucent kerchiefs of pasta stuffed with grassy scallions and leeks. Available as an appetizer or a main course, the dumplings are dressed underneath with a cool, tangy yogurt sauce and on top with an intensely savory ground beef ragu.

Aushak, $6-$13 at Ariana, 384 Western Ave., Boston (617-208-8072)
