Babakaram Restaurant: A User’s Guide

Marinated Filet Mignon Kabobs | Sauteed Smoked Eggplant | Traditional Persian Cuisine | Slow-Cooked Lamb Shank

Sample Menu

  • Chicken koubideh kabob grilled with saffron, onions, and spices
  • Mirza Ghasemi -- smoked eggplant with tomatoes, egg, and garlic, sauteed in olive oil
  • Lamb shank slowly simmered in rich tomato sauce with saffron, chickpea, and potatoes

The Vibe

  • Don’t let the location fool you—though Babakaram occupies an unassuming space amid parking lots and suburban commercial plazas, the interior is as chic as anything you’d find in a city, featuring sheer, flowy curtains and black leather seats.

Vocab Lesson
Barg: a Persian-style barbecued kebab, in which beef, lamb, or chicken is cut in strips, marinated in olive oil and saffron, skewered, and grilled.

Soltani kebab: the "Sultan's kebab" is a pairing of one barbecued barg kebab with one ground-beef koobideh kebab.

While You’re in the Neighborhood
Before: Browse over 50,000 titles of hard-to-find and popular publications, as well of thousands of albums on vinyl at Cornerstone Used Books (22 South Villa Ave.).

After: Head down the street to LunaR Brewing for sips of up to 17 craft beers on tap and games of darts in a local neighborhood brewpub (54 E St. Charles Ave.).
