Without exaggeration this could very well be the best Kosher restaurant in the US when it opens. For those unfamiliar, Solomonov is the James Beard Award winning chef from Zahav, a nationally acclaimed modern Israeli restaurant in Philly (not Kosher). He and his partner Steve Cook operate three very successful treyf places in Phllly so they know how to run a restaurant.

  1. OMG

    1. This looks SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good! THANK YOU for lettng me know!

      1. More info: http://philadelphia.foobooz.com/2012/...

        "A lot of charcuterie and cuisines that are found or were found prior to World War Two in places like Budapest and Bucharest, and even Paris. Expect a lot of goose and cured and smoked salamis and sausages and a fair amount of goose and chicken fat."

        It sounds amazing. Full bar is nice but it sounds like the wine will be mevushal.

              My daughter will be going to Penn...so glad I'll have a destination restaurant when she's there...hope she doesnt find it ;-)

          2. I heard that it is only a month out... probably means closer to two but it's getting close.

            1. Some fresh details on Philly.com today -- no dates unfortunately:
              "dry-aging their own rib-eye, charcoal-roasting chickens over schmaltzy potatoes, reinventing kreplach, sholet (smoked beef with kishke and flageolet), and corned duck breast."

                Can't wait, getting harder to drive to parades in Brooklyn!

                1. re: barryg

                  The description of sholet is curious. Sholet is the hungarian word for cholent (spelled, "solet").

                  1. re: DeisCane

                    It is curious, I wonder if the food writer (not Jewish) got a little confused.
