Stop in at this restaurant, named after a Georgian neon-green tarragon-flavored drink, for high-end fare. The eight-section menu features delicacies from Georgia and the Russian Caucasus region, which include stuffed breads, salads, kebabs and grilled meats, all cooked differently according to their origin. European dishes, such as grilled fish and ribs, are also on the menu. Tarkhun has a lively interior: there's a large Persian carpet in the middle of the room, with photographs of Georgian dancers on the walls. Live music is played in evenings, when it's a mostly local crowd. Be sure to try either the tarkhun or the house vodka, also green from tarragon.
