The sleek, modern décor at Nora boasts whitewashed walls accented by a pair of long, dark wooden boards and chandeliers with thin, opaque, tinkling things that illuminate like ice sculptures from above. Middle-aged couples sit at the bar sipping wine, while larger groups fill out the dining tables and more tables spill onto the patio out front filled with Greenville Avenue residents who have grown bored with the neighborhood's other offerings. Matt Pikar, who is also the chef and owner of the Afghan Grill, offers comparable cuisine at his second restaurant. Leek and meat dumplings and pumpkin topped with yogurt and meat sauce join a host of kebabs and curry that are perfect for diners who are new to Afghan flavors.
