Philadelphia's Zahav to Pop Up at Momofuku Ssäm Bar
Earlier this week Momofuku tweeted out a photo featuring Zahav's logo at their Momofuku Ssäm Bar location (207 Second Ave.), hinting at a potential late-night pop-up. As expected, they've released full details about the evening, sans menu.
The first event of Momofuku's quarterly late-night dinner series will take place on April 9, starting at 11 p.m. Tickets are $85 per person for all food, drink, and gratuity. No word on the menu yet, but judging from the buzz around chef Michael Solomonov, we can imagine Israeli street food like kebabs and fried cauliflower, not to mention a killer hummus. According to Momofuku's tumblr, drinks will probably be provided by Tiger Beer.
Momofuku has hosted pop-ups in the past, notably Ivan Orkin's ramen dinner at Momofuku Noodle Bar last year. A representative tells us that more late-night pop-ups are in the works, saying in an email, "We are definitely planning on more restaurants with the thought of recreating the dining experience of those restaurants at Momofuku Ssäm Bar." Full details below.
Update: A representative tells us that chef Michael Solomonov will be serving up a "Mesibah" style meal, with Zahav's whole-roasted lamb shoulder. For dessert, there will reportedly be a special Federal Donuts creation.
