Description

Restaurants - Middle Eastern

In 2019, Zahav was honored with the prestigious title of “outstanding restaurant” at the James Beard Foundation awards.

Opening its doors in 2008, Zahav is a modern Israeli restaurant that brings the authentic flavors of Israel's cultural heritage to Philadelphia.

The name Zahav means "gold" in Hebrew, and is a reference to Jerusalem, which has been a cultural crossroads for thousands of years. The design of the restaurant echoes the hidden courtyards of Jerusalem, with golden limestone floors and walls, hand-carved tables, and soaring ceilings.

The soul of Zahav is the laffa bread, baked to order in our wood-fired Taboon; the creamy and nutty hummus that will transport you to Jerusalem; and the sizzling skewers of meat grilled over hardwood charcoal. Zahav offers a small plates menu that encourages guests to sample the large variety of cultural influences on the cuisine of Israel - from Eastern Europe to North Africa and from Persia to the Eastern Mediterranean.

Guests can relax and enjoy the bounty of the Israeli table with a cold Lemonnana, a cocktail from our award-winning list, or a bottle of boutique Israeli wine from one of the largest selections outside of Israel.
