Travel + Leisure Calls Philadelphia “America’s Next Great Food City”

So Philadelphia, it seems, is having something of a moment.

There was the Bon Appetit piece on Reading Terminal Market. There was the New York Times naming Philly as one of the “52 Places To Go In 2015,” and putting us third on the list behind Milan and Cuba–which means, yes, first in the United States.




Now, Travel + Leisure has just come out with their list of the best new restaurants in the world, and has given Philly a page, noting, "This unsung destination has blossomed into one of the U.S.’s most exciting restaurant cities—Portland East?—with a fierce indie spirit and world-class kitchen talent."

Nice, right? Local names given a specific shout-out include Serpico, Michael Solomonov (Zahav and FedNuts, sure, but more lovingly Abe Fisher and Dizengoff), and both Fork and High Street On Market which gets the closing line, reading, "The artisanal breads and the caraway-rye rigatoni with pastrami ragù are reasons alone to go to Philly."

So we're awesome is the point here. At least for today. But in the immortal words of the legendary Dirk Diggler, "We can always do better. I'm gonna keep trying if you guys keep trying. Let's keep rocking and rolling, man!"

Hell, yeah.

Happy Hanukkah from Michael Solomonov

Michael Solomonov of Zahav, Abe Fisher, Dizengoff, etc. appears on the above edition of Munchies where he explains how to make a Hanukkah slow roasted short rib while wearing his bathrobe.

Also of note, we have the menu for Zahav’s Very Jewish Christmas that is set for December 23rd. Tickets still remain.

Abe Fisher Gets Three Bells

Craig LaBan is back on Sansom Street, just weeks after giving Dizengoff three bells, to test out Michael Solomonov’s Ashkenazic restaurant, Abe Fisher. LaBan is a fan of just about everything, from the pastrami smoked short rib to the bacon tinged take on the egg cream.

But Abe proved its worth in many ways. The uniquely creative menu is bolstered by outgoing, informed service. The excellent drink program was thoughtfully conceived, from well-crafted theme cocktails (the beet-stained and rummy Nobody Expects the Spanish Inquisition) to its $12 Cruvinet pours of intriguing food-friendly wines, from grenache blanc to bobal and negrette. This is easily one of the year’s most distinctive, well-rounded, and ambitious openings.

Three Bells – Excellent
