Afghan Restaurant, 2700 Jefferson Davis Highway, Alexandria, VA, 703-548-0022 (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [zabihah | Washingtonian | WaPo | City Paper | food-plan | openlist]
Smaller menu, less fine, grittier, and more authentic. A bit out of the way for me, but worth having in the repertoire.
See also Paradise Restaurant of Bethesda, under Persian.
