Zahav brings the flavors of Israel's cultural crossroads to Philadelphia. While Israeli cuisine is in a constant state of evolution, the cooking at Zahav comes from a deep well of Israeli hospitality. Every meal begins with laffa bread baked in the taboon, served with hummus and salatim; mezze; skewers cooked over charcoal; the Pomegranate Lamb Shoulder with chickpeas; and award-winning desserts. Guests can enjoy a cold Lemonanna, a cocktail, or a bottle of boutique Israeli wine.
