Tickets on Sale for Zahav’s Jewish Christmas

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.
