Labeled recently by Food & Wine magazine as an “Empire Builder”, Chef Michael Solomonov will offer tastes of all the traditional Hanukkah favorites this season with a dash of celebrity chef excellence to boost the authentic spices and flavors to a whole delicious new level.
For $48 a person, this year’s Hanukkah menu offers six modern Israeli plates ranging from Latkes with salmon basturma and apple labaneh to Lamb Shanks Braised with Quince topped with smoked cinnamon and freekah.
Following the holiday smorgasbord, on Thursday, December 20, the annual “An Extremely Jewish and Korean Christmas Party” will be happening. Get your tickets now; they’ll go fast.
$55 nabs you access to the festivities, including a delicious meal inspired by the take-out-style Asian-American favorites that have become tradition on Hanukkah for many modern followers of the Hebrew faith. Chef Solomonov will take out the “take out” component and invite you stay in and eat delicious, gourmet Korean food while you watch a funny movie in the company of fellow Hebrew Holiday enthusiasts.
