Shaherzad has been in operation since 1982 and was one of the first Persian restaurants to open in Westwood. Is it home to the most exciting food you’ll find in the neighborhood right now? No, but that’s also not why you’re here. You’re here to pay respects to a bonafide institution, share massive kabob platters with your friends and family, and eat incalculable amounts of free bread from the massive clay oven in the back.
