Home-style and authentic Persian food, with a focused menu. Lunches are $8, with soup or salad and rice alongside the entrees. Meats are mostly local and organic. Layla's is homey, like dropping by the chef's house to share a meal, with the cook possibly also waiting on your table. There is a short flight of steps down to the small dining area.
