The hummus and pita aficionados at Dizengoff will finally be making their debut of dinner next week, the first time the hitmakers from Philly be offering a menu of more than just hummus in New York. Michael Solomonov and Steve Cook’s Chelsea Market outpost will be the first Dizengoff to serve dinner, run by chef Emily Seaman. It will be a three-course, family-style meal for $45 per person, excluding drinks, and at least for now, it will only be available with a reservation on Thursdays. Tickets for the approximately 20-seat counter can be purchased now.
Expect Dizengoff’s daytime hummus and pita to show up at dinner as well, but just as a starter and accompanied by a ton of little salads. The main event will be dishes like a stuffed vegetables, short rib, and lamb shank. Lamb is one of the Solomonov and Cook team’s fortes at other restaurants like Zahav, and Solomonov has said he envisions the dinner as a meal similar to one at someone’s home. The meal ends with a dessert course, with potential dishes like Turkish coffee custard.
The star team from Philly has so far done well with the New York crowd. Dizengoff’s daytime operation has been a hit — Eater critic Robert Sietsema recently awarded it three stars — and people lined up like crazy when Federal Donuts popped up last week. Dizengoff’s first dinner takes place next Thursday. Stay tuned for photos, and let us know what you think if you go.
