James Beard Award-winning chef Alon Shaya’s inventive Israeli food is just as delicious at home as it is in his airy, sun-lit restaurant. Start with a large plate, like harissa roasted chicken or pomegranate braised lamb shank, and tack on smaller dishes like saffron rice, housemade hummus, and the fan-favorite charred cabbage. Save room for dessert: pistachio almond babka, chocolate mousse, and a bake-at-home cookie box. Oh, and don’t miss the creative merch — we like the pita hat. Dining room and patio now open.
