Anoush'ella is the work of husband-and-wife team Raffi and Nina Festekjian, who are drawing upon their Armenian-Lebanese heritage for inspiration. The restaurant offers both eat-in and take-out options, filling the South End neighborhood with street food-inspired dishes, including wraps, salads, and more.
