Zahav is once again hosting a very Jewish Christmas. On Monday, December 23rd, it will be Vietnamese food and a movie. And this year the food will serve as a menu preview of Tyler Akin’s upcoming restaurant, Stock, a Vietnamese restaurant that Akin (a sous chef at Zahav) is opening at 308 E. Girard Avenue in Fishtown.
The movies are a surprise, but will most likely be R-rated. Price is $55 per person and excludes beverages, tax and gratuity.
So you think you’re too late to get in on the whole one-night-only Chanukah menu at Zahav happening tomorrow night? Well, you’re only half right. While the dinner itself is pretty much sold out (according to the managers, there might be some last-minute cancellations, but there’s also a REALLY long waiting list), there is still hope. The bar at Zahav is going to be open on a first-come/first-served basis, and everything that’s on the special, six-course Chanukah menu will be available at the bar, a la carte. So yes, that means you’ll be able to assemble the entire dinner for yourself, or just order six plates of the fried challah donuts with burnt marshmallow and call it a night.
Check out the full menu after the jump.
Zahav chef and co-owner, Michael Solomonov will be filming a two-hour documentary called The Search for Israeli Cuisine. Solomonov will be followed around Israel by two-time Academy Award nominee and James Beard Award winning filmmaker Roger Sherman. The documentary will air on PBS in 2014.
Check out the preview above to get a feel for what the film will be about and for just how rich Israel’s food scene is.
