Westwood is home to Little Tehran, a tiny neighborhood-within-a-neighborhood that’s home to the best Persian food in LA. If you’re looking for an entry point, go to Attari. Unlike some of the large, sit-down places along Westwood Blvd., this order-at-the-counter shop keeps things quick, casual, and affordable. The menu features a tongue sandwich that’s worth extending your lunch hour to eat, but frankly, everything is great. Prepare for a line, and for plenty of people watching on the front patio.
