I have lived in the Philly suburbs for many years but for some reason had never made it to Zahav. It's been on my list for years. Well, this weekend we finally went and my expectations were pretty high. Incredibly they not only met my expectations but exceeded them. The food was delicious and the service was spot on. I had wanted to pre-order the Mesibah but my dining partners said no as there were some Grilled Dishes they wanted to try. As delicious as everything we had was, we all regretted not trying the lamb.

And so? We will be going back in a few weeks adding 2 more to our group and trying the Mesibah. I can't wait.

  1. Zahav is wonderful but the lamb is the best. Just skip lunch on the day you's a lot of food!

      I had read that the Mezibah is a lot of food and that's why we didn't pre-order it. We actually were downtown for an early, one hour Cocktail Party where we suspected there would be some but not much food. The party actually had a lot more food than 'advertised' and we could have stayed for dinner but I was thrilled to get to Zahav. Can't wait to try the lamb in a few weeks.
