After closing on Jan. 1 for an extensive remodeling, the popular Beacon Hill restaurant Lala Rokh has reopened with a new look and an expanded menu.

                “We wanted to open the space up in feel while keeping its coziness,” said Babak Bina, who owns and operates the eatery with his sister, Azita Bina-Seibel. “To reach the three different dining rooms before, you had to walk through a maze. Now, you can already see light spill into the second dining room.”

                Besides new furniture, refurbished floors and a different color scheme, the renovated space will also feature new art installations.

                “We have always been and will continue to be a window into the Persian culture, featuring Old World cuisine, as well as its art and music,” Bina said.

The restaurant’s new menu will continue to focus on “Old World” cuisine while expanding its offering to fare from other regions of Iran.

                “With this comes new ingredients, new recipes and new dishes never featured before at Lala Rokh, including additional seafood and vegetarian item.” Bina said.

                Meanwhile, Hill residents can still expect the same superior cuisine and service that Lala Rokh has offered since opening 20 years ago.

                “Although we have received national and international acclaim, we continue to be a neighborhood restaurant on Beacon Hill,” Bina said.

Lala Rokh is located at 97 Mt. Vernon St. For more information, visit lalarokh.com or call 617-720-5511.
