Vegans and vegetarians, the award-winning duo who recently opened a famed doughnut and fried chicken shop in Wynwood hasn’t forgotten about you.
Dizengoff, the cult-favorite Philadelphia hummus shop from the chef-restaurateur team behind Federal Donuts, will open directly next door July 25. The restaurant is a more simple spin off of chef Michael Solomonov’s Zahav, for which he was named the James Beard Outstanding Chef in May.
Dizengoff is straight-forward: It styled after the hummus stalls that are as common on Tel Aviv street corners as croquetas and cafecito are in Miami.
“Dizengoff is an exciting and vibrant concept that is also deeply rooted in tradition,” Solomonov wrote in a release. “And to me, this is Miami. It’s an international city in the same way as Tel Aviv.”
The fresh-made hummus is topped with a choice of rotating seasonal garnishes, from classically topped with olive oil and paprika to the carnivore-friendly spiced lamb with pine nuts. They’re served with sides of in-house baked pita, chopped salads and Israeli pickles.
And on Sundays, Dizengoff will serve shakshuka, a classic North African dish of eggs baked in a spicy tomato and pepper stew.
This will be the fourth Dizengoff outpost, including one in New York City’s Chelsea Market. Miami was the next logical location, said James Beard Award-winning restaurateur Steven Cook, who was partly raised in Miami.
“We love Miami. It’s really the Tel Aviv of America. And Dizengoff is a concept named for, and inspired by, Tel Aviv,” he wrote. “Why wouldn’t we do Dizengoff in Miami?”
