I could eat Mediterranean food pretty much every day. The cheeses, the breads, the vegetables, oh my. I first visited what is known as Philly’s top restaurant, Zahav, 5 years ago. It is a beautiful modern Israeli restaurant. Following the success of Zahav, the team opened a fast-casual version of their concept called Dizengoff. They did the right thing by me and opened their second location in NYC recently at Chelsea Market.
Dizengoff is modeled after the hummus stalls you find on the corners of Israeli streets. It fits in perfectly in the loud and bustling space of Chelsea Market. Locals and tourists alike pack into the space to shop, dine, and graze. It is the ideal location for a counter serving fast and delicious bites. Dizengoff offers a small menu of freshly made hummus, salatim (Israeli salads), and shakshuka. The hummus, which is among the best you’ll ever find, comes with a rotating roster of seasonal garnishes. I particularly loved the one with fava beans, olive oil, and mint. They all come with freshly baked warm pita for dipping. It’s the perfect snack; light & healthy. Definitely worth a stop as you stroll through the relative chaos of the market. Here’s what we had”
