Nick Macri of Southwark – grilled bologna and potato salad on a Martins potato roll

Top Chef’s Jen Carroll – roasting lamb on a spit over open coals

Lucio Palazzo of La Calaca Feliz – octopus escabeche, potato garnacha

John “Chainsaw” Taus of The Corner – breakfast sausage corn dogs, jalepenos, maple dip

Peter Woolsey of Bistrot La Minette – smoked beef tongue, rye, mustard

and David Katz of Creekstone Farms – brisket chili cheeseburgers w onions

A full buffet dinner will be created and served by chef Solomonov and his Zahav team. Among the items included, soft-shell crab with almond tarator and BLTs with house made bacon.

    okay, i am going and can’t wait, but ohmygod could someone make a fucking vegetable? I mean, i’m not a vegetarian or anything, but it’s June. Veggies are awesome right now. And everyone is going to die from the cholesterol.

    Crab? Pork? Octopus? Cheeseburgers? There is very little European Jewish inspiration here. Just saying…

    • JA

      Agreed, big Solomonov fan…but this is sort of a mockery.

        that’s kinda always been the thing with these events–it’s the one chance for zahav to go all out with fully non-kosher foods they don’t otherwise prep @ zahav. i do agree, the euro jewish bbq term is a bit odd.
