For two months, Angela Gevorgian has enjoyed the genuine work of running a restaurant far more than her 17 years at a bank. She enjoys the fact that she’s finally her own boss, and the small, simple menu reflects that it is just what she wants to do right now.
Her bistro is on the outer edge of The Exchange in Glendale and faces Wilson Avenue, halfway between Brand and Maryland. It’s warm and simple with natural wood counters and tables, mustard-colored walls with beautiful scroll stenciling at the top. It smells good right when you walk in.
The menu is a collection of lovely choices for a light lunch on a hot day, or a breakfast treat. The soups of the day when I was there were Lentil and Turkey Ball. We tried the Light Lunch Special ($6.50) of a half sandwich and a small salad. We ate with plastic utensils that had been placed on a large paper napkin, and the food came on cool square plates and bowls, with a handful of Sun Chips for a salty crunch.
