Zahav Modern Israeli

Zahav takes diners on a journey across cultures. The meal starts with the Salatim, an assortment of six daily vegetable salads. These small dishes foreshadowed what was to come later in the meal.

Recipe: Slow-Cooker Beef Short Ribs

Crock Pots are a wonderful thing. They require simple preparation but keep the ingredients moist. This is the recipe.

There are two levels with a bar on each one. The…

Where to Find Philadelphia’s Best Square Pizza

In a city with Neapolitan pizzerias opening on every other corner, it’s becoming harder to stand out. Many have tried using imported ingredients such as Prosciutto di Parma, or even strange ingredients like Buffalo sauce, but it becomes hard to distinguish between pizzerias after a while. Surely the only way to make a statement is…
