Philadelphia chefs have been flocking north to New York in droves, from the folks behind bread-focused High Street on Market (see review) to the Spanish tapas-slinging Amada, set to open later this spring. Now, Philly dining titans Michael Solomonov and Steve Cook make a splashy entrance to the scene with an expanded, 18-seat outpost of their house-made–hummus stall Dizengoff in Chelsea Market. As with the original, hummus and salads are offered for takeout by the pint, and fresh pita breads are boxed by the half and full dozen. New York exclusives include larger composed offerings such as a North African shakshuka (eggs poached in a spicy stew of tomatoes and peppers) and salatim, or Israel-style salads (Moroccan carrots with saffron, raw kohlrabi marinated in Yemen's hot-sauce-like schug). Beverages include a selection of Israeli wines and frozen limonana (Israeli mint lemonade) spiked with bourbon.
