Very few restaurants encapsulate a neighborhood quite like Carousel does with Glendale. This massive Middle Eastern/Armenian restaurant on Brand Ave. is the social center of the whole town. Is the food the best you can find in the area? No. But it doesn’t matter, because you’re sitting at the same table with everyone you love and there’s a hoard of belly dancers headed your way.
