Great Restaurants in Philadelphia: Zahav

Jason Varney

Zahav

Although he worked in several acclaimed local kitchens, it wasn’t until Israeli-born chef Michael Solomonov did it his way at Zahav that he achieved national regard, winning the 2011 James Beard Award for Best Chef in the Mid-Atlantic. At this citadel of worn wood and limestone in the shadow of I. M. Pei’s Society Hill Towers, Solomonov’s Middle Eastern combinations include mellow, musky, twice-cooked eggplant salad served next to nutty hummus with blistered flatbread, still warm from the wood-burning oven.
