Afghani Culture and Cuisine

The Helmand is named after an important waterway that flows through Afghanistan, the nation that inspires this venue's cuisine and decor. The atmosphere here is refined and comfortable, with a seating area flanked by a fireplace and accented with intricately decorated textiles.

This authentic Afghani eatery makes its own flatbread in a traditional wood burning oven, which guests can see in action from the nearby dining room. Come and enjoy a sophisticated menu that includes varieties of breads, desserts, pastas, and soups unique to this region of the world. The wine list also offers an impressive array of national and international selections, and vegetarian plates are also available.
