Last week, Michael Solomonov, Steve Cook, and Emily Seaman rolled out the three-course $45 dinner option at their hit Chelsea Market hummus counter Dizengoff. Based on the demand for tickets during the first week, the trio decided to add Friday night service as well. Tickets for these family-style Israeli feasts on Thursdays and Fridays can be purchased on the Dizengoff homepage.
Each meal starts with a course of hummus, bread, and an assortment of salatim. The entree course will be either roasted short ribs or a lamb dish in the vein of the famous shoulder that Solomonov serves at the group's Philly flagship, Zahav. Course number three is dessert — to kick things off last week, the team served Turkish coffee custard. Check out photos of the first week's feast from restaurant editor/resident carnivore Nick Solares below, and if you happen to stop by to try the blow-out meal, please do let us know what you think.
