At his groundbreaking Zahav, chef Michael Somonov is diving deep into Israeli cuisine, developing deep flavors, and demanding quiet contemplation of what he’s able to accomplish. He takes a slightly different tack at Abe Fisher, his ode to Jewish-American cuisine, more inspired by Eastern European Jewish staples than Israeli. It’s fun, silly, and most importantly, really tasty.

His menu is divided into four sections, three of which are small plates: One through three increase in price from $11 to $15 each, and “For the Table” is a selection of two larger-format entrées.

Gribenes — crispy chicken skin — are doused in buffalo sauce and served on lettuce wraps with celery and Roquefort emulsion. Chopped liver is still made with the usual onion-heavy recipe, but it has the consistency of a fine mousse and is served with dainty thick slices of homemade rye bread and pastrami-onion jam. Bite-size matzoh balls are served deep fried in a gratin dish, topped with tomato sauce, melted pecorino, and plenty of dill. Individual roccoli and Cheddar kugels are dusted with everything bagel breadcrumbs. Kreplach are filled with corn and served with chanterelle mushrooms, kale, and black truffle. A Reuben is made with corned pork belly and pickled green tomatoes. A potato latke is topped with beef tartare. “Health salad” and Manischewitz even make appearances; the former atop a veal schnitzel taco and the latter as the base of a sauce for hanger steak. Solomonov is also serving what might be the world’s most playful take on foie gras torchon: with peanut butter, jelly, and a cinnamon raisin bagel.

As for those family-style entrées, we’ll just let the menu descriptions speak for themselves: Hungarian duck: Chinatown style with kishke, steamed buns, schmaltz rice, and garnishes; and Montreal short ribs: whole smoked short rib plate with housemade rye bread and garnishes. Does this even count as “fusion” anymore?

When a James Beard Award winner gets his hands on old Jewish recipes, the outcome is clearly going to be unexpected. And not only that: The menu changes regularly, so you never know what he’ll think of next.


Our Favorite Philly Restaurant Empire

Philadelphia has developed into quite a foodie destination. Although we love to try new places, Tobey and I are definitely not “fine diners” – our criteria are less about service and ambience and more along the lines of:

There are many, many restaurants that fit this criteria (which is why we can’t keep up with our “to try” list), but some of our favorites are owned by Philadelphia’s Cook ‘n Solo team. We’ve written about some of these individually, but there’s lot’s more to say…

Federal Donuts: Super crispy fried chicken and delicious donuts. What more could you want from a restaurant? Philly Restaurant Review: Federal Donuts (Donuts & Fried Chicken).

Merkaz: the newest of their fast casual restaurants, their specialty is pita sandwiches and Israeli sodas (although they also serve their oh so yummy hummus). Pictured are the chicken schnitzel and sabich (fried eggplant with salads and a hard boiled egg). Both were yummy and super flavorful – just like you’d expect from the chefs. It’s not nearly as busy as Diz or Goldie. Seating is limited, but we had no problem getting a table for 6. 1218 Sansom.

K’far Cafe: Like their other restaurants (except Federal Donuts), K’far is Israeli- this time an all day cafe featuring coffee and pastries, toasts, bagel sandwiches and salads, and heartier dinner-time options. Like the places, the menu is limited, but the food is super fresh and very flavorful. Two thumbs up for everything we tried: the Yemeni latte (flavored with cinnamon and cardamom), the borekas (flaky puff pastry with fillings-we had both the sweet (cream cheese & quince jam) and savory (curried potato)), the Jerusalem bagel grilled cheese, the Arabic salad, and a chocolate babka for dessert (super moist and chocolatey). Yes, we left stuffed-but everything sounded so yummy… Vegan/vegetarian friendly. Counter service (except at the bar, table service at dinner) with communal seating. Some outdoor seating.

Cookbooks: The team has published 2 cookbooks. The first, “Zahav,” is beautiful and fun to read, but the recipes are a little too complicated and time consuming for my cooking style. However, the second, “Israeli Soul,” has become a favorite. Besides being an interesting read (there is also a Netflix documentary filmed in Israel while researching the book – “In Search of Israeli Cuisine”), it is full of recipes that are unique and outside of my typical Mexican/Indian/Italian range of flavors. There are some complicated recipes (like the Goldie’s falafel and milkshakes) that I know I’ll never make, I’ve already made about a dozen of the salads and hummus toppings – all of which were delicious and I will definitely make again. I’m really looking forward to the summer when I can try the fresh veggie options.
