Zahav, one of Philadelphia’s most acclaimed restaurants, is giving you excuses all month long to feast your face off in the spirit of the holidays.

The restaurant will host three special dinner events: Chanukah; their second-annual “A Very Jewish Christmas,” and a New Year’s Eve celebration.

Each will include a festive prix-fixe menu, created by Chef Michael Solomonov. As the Chef puts it, “December is a month for feasting with friends and family, and we can never come up with enough great reasons to do so.”

Chanukah at Zahav
From Tuesday, December 20 until Wednesday, December 28, dine on a Chanukah Menu for $45 per person. Dishes include Hummus with Glazed Brisket, served with house-made laffa and a selection of salatim; a selection of Latkes; Sufganiyot with dates and orange and much more.

“A Very Jewish Christmas”
On Thursday, December 22, Zahav will celebrate “A Very Jewish Christmas” with Israeli-inflected Chinese food, movies shown on a big screen and hot buttered popcorn. Screenings will be at 6 and 9 p.m. and Zahav is accepting movie requests via Twitter.

Just like last year, guests won’t know what movies they are going to watch until the lights go down and the opening credits begin to roll. For $50 per person, enjoy a delicious menu plus a selection of creative Chinese inspired cocktails, each $9. For $100, attendees can also purchase a bottle of Johnnie Walker Black for the table.

New Year’s Eve at Zahav
On New Year’s Eve, the restaurant will serve a spectacular four-course dinner for $65 per person or with drink pairings for $100 per person. Menu highlights include Glazed Veal Shanks with saffron, apples and cinnamon and Chocolate-Hazelnut Babka with orange-vanilla ice cream.

Call (215) 625-8800 for reservations to any of the above festivities. All three full menus are included below.
