How Israel Got Huge

You’ve got to understand something about Israeli cuisine right from the start: It’s not something that existed in the American consciousness a few years ago.

Really, it’s not something that exists there now. Not in most places. You’ll find a few spots in and around New York where Israeli dishes get to shine. And there have always been delis where you could get your brisket and your matzo ball soup, but that’s more about Jewish cuisine than it is Israeli. Like the thing about thumbs and fingers, all Israeli restaurants are Jewish but not all Jewish restaurants are Israeli.

Nirvana at Abe Fisher – Praise for the Montreal-Smoked Short Ribs

Food Republic’s Matt Rodbard has been a fan of Zahav and its lamb shoulder for some time now. But now he might have a new favorite dish in town, the Montreal-smoked short ribs at Abe Fisher.

Yes, the result is tender. Incredibly tender, in a way that an unctuous short rib should be after this much love and attention (the tougher brisket cut is the typical protein used in this type of smoking). But it’s also deeply smoked and sliced perfectly to reveal a shade of prime rib pink I’d never seen with smoked meat. Our party of five ate in near-silence (the poor vegetarian sixth was left hanging for the eight minutes it took us to polish off the platters — there were two of them involved).

An order of the Montreal-smoked short ribs at Abe Fisher feeds four and is served up with rye bread and garnishes. There are currently only two orders available a night, so make your reservations for early.
