Attari Sandwich Shop is one of my favorite places to eat in the city, before/after the airport (except Mondays when it is closed), for takeout (bring some to the Getty and have a picnic! It still tastes great at home!), to take visitors...The meat is good quality so the kabobs (which are well-marinated and tender) are nice, but the bread (both the French bread used for sandwiches and the flatbread that you can request for the kabobs) is excellent, so I often go with the sandwiches. The Kashk-e Bademjan eggplant appetizer is the epitome of eggplant spreads and I usually get an extra order to take home (though I don't like the thin, floppy flatbread they serve with it - I bypass that and spoon it onto my rice or use the fluffy flatbread to sop it up). They have some interesting cuts of meat/sandwich stuffings, including mortadella, sosees (hot-dog/sausage-ish), brain, and kuku (herbed egg cooked like a frittata), though I've stuck with the tamer meats. On Fridays they serve ab-goosht, a lamb/chickpea stew about which Jonathan Gold raves (#60 on the list; the restaurant is also featured in the City of Gold documentary about him). As mentioned above, it can be difficult to find parking, but it's worth it! It's crowded inside and the tiny outdoor courtyard is spare but charming; if you sit a while you can clearly see that it's a local gathering place. They have baklava and other pastries but my husband adores the zoolbia above all.
