It’s not often that a luminary like Nathan comes to town, but Abe Fisher is the perfect place to do it. Nathan’s new cookbook, King Solomon’s Table — her 11th — collects recipes from the Jewish diaspora. Abe Fisher’s concept mirrors this, with a menu that includes culinary touchstones from Jewish communities across the globe from Montreal to Hungary.

Nathan and Abe Fisher chef Yehuda Sichel have collaborated on a special four-course prixe-fixe menu to celebrate Nathan’s visit. Tickets are $90 each (sold in sets of two or four, with three seatings available throughout the evening) and will get you dinner (including tax and gratuity), conversation with Nathan, and a signed copy of her new book.
