The New York location of Michael Solomonov and Steve Cook's Israeli hummus restaurant Dizengoff faced a few setbacks over the last few months, mostly having to do with the instillation of a big-ass taboon. But now work is nearly complete inside the Chelsea Market space, and the Philly superstars are about to fire up the oven to make the pita, roasted meats, and vegetables to accompany all that hummus. Cook, Solomonov, and chef Emily Seaman will be serving five types of hummus plus three salatim. The menu options will change daily, and the salads and pita will also be available to-go.
The Robs note that Seaman has been working on a braised lamb neck dish with rhubarb and black lime. Later this year, the Diz team will launch dinner service, which will likely revolve around family-style roasted meat or vegetable dishes. Solomonov recently told Eater: "I can imagine pulling a lamb out and slicing it up. Like if you had people over for dinner at your house, you'd pull a roast out of the oven and serve it, and make it as delicious as possible."
The restaurant is slated to open next Wednesday, May 25, but who knows? It might open a bit earlier. Here's a peek at the counter, per the tipline:
