Philadelphia celebrity chef Michael Solomonov’s Israeli fine dining spot is one of Philadelphia’s most creative and delicious culinary destinations. Start dinner with the city’s best hummus and “salatim”—a daily selection of pickled and fresh salads served with traditional laffa bread. Limestone floors and wood tables transport you to Jerusalem. The best seat in the house is at the small chef's counter: from here, you can see the chefs working over coal fires. The sharable roasted lamb shoulder with pomegranate and chickpeas is a must-order entree. Reserve these popular tables in advance.
