Philadelphia's Zahav has earned itself a loyal bevy of fans who love their take on Mediterranean food. The ambiance is lovely and relaxing, with soft music and attentive service.

Begin with a starter like Yemenite soup with chicken broth, baby turnips, & pickled onions, Roasted Zucchini with Bulgarian feta, hazelnuts, zucchini & babaganoush, or an Heirloom tomato salad with & house-made ricotta.

Mezze, or small plates, are also a good way to go. Choose several to share at the table or keep them all to yourself. Options include Crispy Lamb’s Tongue with snap peas, smoked grapes, pistachio tehina, & peaches, Kibbe Naya with raw lamb, corn, fenugreek, & kale, and Watermelon salad with marinated cobia, olives, & smoked honey.
