Since 2008, Zahav has served authentic Israeli cuisine in an airy-chic dining room marked by limestone floors and walls, lofty ceilings and rustic lighting fixtures reminiscent of an Israeli courtyard. This iconic Society Hill restaurant from James Beard award-winning chef Michael Solomonov, turns out wood-fired laffa bread and hummus, mezze (small plates) like grilled haloumi, charcoal-grilled lamb and beef kofte. Drink offerings include wines from Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Turkey and Morocco as well as house cocktails like the Lemonnana (bourbon, muddled mint, lemon, verbena).
