Named for one of Tel Aviv’s most iconic streets, Dizengoff first landed stateside in Philadelphia in the Summer of 2014, modeled on the hummus stalls (hummusiyas) found around every corner in Israel.
And just like in Israel, Dizengoff serves only freshly-made hummus (heavy on the tehina) – topped with rotating seasonal garnishes like hot spiced lamb with pine nuts or avocado with harissa – accompanied by fresh, hearth-baked pita, chopped salad, and Israeli pickles. Lemonnana (Israeli-style frozen mint lemonade) and local craft beer wash down a vibrant and healthful meal that is a staple of every slice of Israeli society – from cab drivers to lawyers, cops to criminals, and politicians to students.
In the Spring of 2016, under the leadership of Chef/Partner Emily Seaman, Dizengoff opened its second location inside New York City’s storied Chelsea Market. This outpost offers an expanded menu of rotating Israeli-style salads (or salatim), shakshuka for breakfast every morning, and Israeli wines by the glass.
There’s no cheaper ticket to Israel than a trip to Dizengoff!
Join us for Chef Emily Seaman's ode to Israeli home cooking. Every Thursday night at 7:30pm, we’re serving a three-course, family-style meal that changes with the seasons and is inspired by the vibrant, soulful and exotic flavors of the Israeli table.
The meal begins (as every meal should) with hummus, house-baked pita and a dizzying array of vegetable salads. The entrée, whether it’s lamb shanks braised with Moroccan spices and borlotti beans, or slow roasted short ribs with coffee and Yemenite spice, will make you long for the Israeli grandmother you never knew you had. Save room for dessert (you’re too skinny).
The meal is $45 per person and is all-inclusive, excluding beverages (which consist of some really cool Israeli wines, as well as draft beer and a cocktail or two).
So! If you want to see what comes after hummus, we invite you to roll up your sleeves, bump elbows with your neighbor, and dig in to Dinner at Dizengoff NYC.
