Philadelphia’s Dizengoff and Townsend are among the 50 nominees for Bon Appetit’s “America’s Best New Restaurants 2015″ list. Dizengoff gets the nomination for its hummus, which is described as “preposterously smooth, ethereally light, very generously drizzled with olive oil, and guaranteed to spoil you for the grocery-store stuff forever.”
Over at Townsend, Bon Appetit is thrilled to see that French food and white tablecloths still have a place in American restuarants.
The 50 nominees will be whittled down to the final list of ten on August 18th.

That wasn’t Zimmern’s only stop on Woodland Avenue. The gutsy eater tried also ate Liberian grilled chicken from a sidewalk grill.
Today, Zimmern has been spotted at Dizengoff/Abe Fisher on Sansom Street.
