Saveur Magazine Names Zahav And Flying Fish To Their Top 100

Each year, Saveur Magazine publishes “The Saveur 100,” a highly coveted list of the Top 100 Food and Drink Items the magazine considers to be the new classics.

This year’s edition, printed in the January/February 2012 issue of the magazine as well as online, included not one, but two Philadelphia-area places.

Zahav and Flying Fish’s Oyster Stout beer Exit 1 were included as #71 and #81, respectively.

Zahav received a full-page color spread, including a lovely close-up shot of the restaurant’s famed hummus. The writer described Michael Solomonov’s Society Hill Israeli spot, which continually cleans up in awards, as “[o]ne of the most seductive restaurants” she knows and “utterly transporting.”

As for Flying Fish, it was included as one of just three examples of great Oyster Stout, a style of beer that originated in New Zealand in the 1920s, made by dunking oysters in their shells right into the brew kettle.

Browse the list online if you don’t have the print copy.

Congrats to both Zahav and Flying Fish on such a huge honor!
