Located near the ancient Ivanovsky convent, this biblically named restaurant is one of Moscow's top places for Armenian food. The authentic specialties make use of homemade breads, salads, cheese, yogurt, fresh vegetables, and grilled meats. Order the signature Noah's Ark, which consists of grilled pork, lamb, and veal served on a big wooden ark-shaped platter, with a small fire pit in the middle. The restaurant's plush interior is filled with dark wood furniture, curtains, and mirrors covered with Armenian-inspired gilded grape patterns. Ethnic music plays during the evening, and you might be lucky enough to hear a performance by an Armenian singer while you eat. The restaurant is a little hard to find, so be sure to keep an eye out for its name in Cyrillic.
