It may be a magnificent mile for shopping, but when it comes to dinner, Michigan Avenue often disappoints. If you’re looking for something other than burgers and Italian, head for the only Armenian restaurant in town. Sink into a booth in one of the room’s dim corners, and recharge with flaky spinach-stuffed phyllo triangles (called boereg) and flavorful kebabs. The lone server can make the experience slow, but that’s nothing the mahalabeya—a creamy milk pudding topped with walnuts and lemon syrup—can’t make you forget.
