It's almost impossible to resist an avocado-based sandwich. The fruit is buttery and rich, but it's also plenty refreshing. The Avocado Sandwich ($8.50) at Iris does not disappoint. Dijon mayo provides a little extra creaminess, while a quick pickle gives a crunch that's not too vinegary. Sharp cheddar cheese makes for a heartier bite, but the real star here (besides the ripe avocado) is the nutty 7-grain bread: a little sour, and chewy in a very satisfying way.
