With long wooden tables, iron chandeliers swinging from the ceiling, and secret booths hidden among tiny alcoves, Old Gyumri’s space feels closer to a century-old tavern deep in the Armenian Highlands than a restaurant on a Glendale side street. While eating inside is off the table right now, that shouldn’t stop you from ordering takeout. We absolutely love the barbecued lamb chops, and if you’re looking for something lighter, their massive Armenian salad beats any corporate salad bar.
