New menu items at Zahav!

After a month hiatus, we had drinks and dinner at Zahav Saturday evening. There are menu items, small plates, which have been recently added and were new to us. We did have a few new ones including Short Ribs and the Burssel Sprout dishes which were both interesting and quite good to our taste. We feel their Cosmos are among the best we have had anywhere; made with fresh lime juice, Combier and Kettle (our your choice) vodka. Their hummus is another favorite of ours especially with the Fava beans. Same great service in a fun venue with eclectic patrons.

  1. I was there a couple weeks ago. I really liked the brussel sprout dish but the one that blew me away was the house-smoked sable on a challah toast with egg yolk... unbelievable.

    1. I was there during the last week in October. I too adored the hummus and enjoyed the brussel sprout dish. I enjoyed my entire meal, really. However, I do think that the food was too salty for my taste. The fried cauliflower and the pumpkin cooked in butter were particularly salty. I still enjoyed the food, it just would have preferred that everything had less salt. I think it would have tasted better.

        Must try the house-smoked sable dish, tks barryg.

        I have never noticed the saltyness but then I wouild not as I usually add salt. Perhaps a comment to someone there when ordering your dish would make a difference and alert them to the possibility that they might be a bit heavy with it! I never have salted at Zahav, hmmmm?

          We were there a few nights ago and had the tasting menu which included the brussel sprouts, white fish, and the amazing lamb cooked in pomegranate juice. Everything was excellent. This was the first time we'd been back since a trip to Israel in June. I have to say that the hummus really was as great as you'll find in Israel.
