A poster below mentioned Persepolis, "a wonderful place serving Iranian food."
Anyone know any others? Specifically, I'm wondering about a dish in which rice is intentionally overcooked, creating a crust on the bottom of the pan. The loose rice is then removed, and the bowl-shaped rice crust is filled with a rich lamb stew. As you eat, you tear off the rice crust and dip it into the stew like bread. Meanwhile, the crust at the bottom is soaking up the stew's broth.
I had Iranian roommates in the distant past who used to cook this dish. It was genius. It may have been a home-cooking thing you won't find in a restaurant. I'd still be interested in eating at an Iranian restaurant, though, because everything those guys cooked was fantastic. Lots of pomegranite seeds and parsley.
