Specializing in tasty home-style Armenian dishes flavored with traditional spices and sauces, this restaurant can be hard to find. Make the effort. You descend a steep flight of stairs to an atmospheric Crusader-era room decorated with hand-painted Armenian tiles. Soft Greek and Armenian music adds to the atmosphere. Frankly, we could—and often do—make a meal of the appetizers here, particularly the small, traditional meat pies, salads, and soups (try the pepper salad and the cucumber-and-yogurt salad). Israeli beer and a good selection of wine are served, and a $10 minimum order is required.
