Best of Philly 2006 New Chef

Marigold Kitchen

Our Rising Star Detector went off the minute we tasted his savory chicken truffle amuse rolled in smoked paprika at West Philly’s Marigold Kitchen. And while the restaurant’s best summer started, chilled tomato soup with cucumber-tomato salad, chilled oysters and green tobiko, exemplifies Solomonov’s modern-eclectic style, he hasn’t fogotten where he came from: Pink lentil soup with cinnamon-spiced lamb sausage and pearly couscous with escargots are two tasty nods to his native Israel.
