If there's one restaurant that no one feels hungry leaving, it's Zahav. Chef Mike Solomonov and his crew are known for stretching their four-course dinners into epic feasts, and now, they're making the game even bigger with 10-course Kitchen Counter dinners. The four seats, which overlook the kitchen, will have one seating per weekend night, and cost $90 per person. While that might sound pricey, compared to Vetri ($155) and the new Le Bec Fin ($150), it's a steal.
The Kitchen Counter series is launching in August as invite-only, but starting in September, reservations are available. Expect more of the great mix of modern and classic Israeli flavors Mike Solo is known for, and some innovative dishes we've never seen before.
When Zahav first opened in May of 2008, Solomonov and Co. had a separate upscale dining room called The Quarter, but shut it down as it added too much complication for the staff when they were first getting traction for the restaurant. But now, Zahav is a well-oiled, 4-bell machine, and the kitchen counter dinners will only add to the experience.
