Worker bees, take note

A year into the opening of Dizengoff, owners Steve Cook and Mike Solomonov took a whirlwind trip to Israel, eating at 82 places in 10 days and returning with a passion for pita sandwiches: The result is that thanks to an all-new menu that launches Wednesday at the Chelsea Market stall, three-star hummus and pita can now be devoured in sandwich form.

Fried eggplant, chicken schnitzel, braised lamb, and shakshuka sandwiches are a departure for the place that until now has only served plates during the day. Now, worker bees and tourists on-the-go can clutch a pocket in one hand while dashing off in distinct New Yorker style for a full meal that’s under $12.

NYC is the first Dizengoff that has pita sandwiches, though if they’re successful, Miami and Philadelphia could follow suit. Delivery is also on the docket. Looking ahead, Cook says the team is always eyeing NYC real estate — perhaps for a location of Philly hit Federal Donuts.

Sabich: Eggplant, haminados egg, amba cabbage, hummus, and Israeli salad ($9)
