el Solomonov and Steve Cook’s Abe Fisher Jewish-style restaurant in Philadelphia is finding ways to increase its business in spite of the Coronavirus shutdowns. The restaurant offers its cuisine for delivery nationwide and now you can even order their meals for your Passover Seder.
Unfortunately, while it may be “Kosher Style,” if you keep kosher Abe Fisher is not actually a kosher restaurant. But this may only matter to those people who strictly adhere to the kosher guidelines. While it may be open on Saturdays, the restaurant serves only meat and vegetarian dishes with no dairy items.
Israeli Chef Michael Solomonov was born in G’nei Yehuda and raised in Pittsburgh. At the age of 18, he returned to Israel with no Hebrew language skills. So he took a job in a bakery and learned how to cook. He also owns another Philadelphia restaurant called Zahav, which means gold in Hebrew.
Zahav offersIsraeli cuisine. Like at Israeli steak houses, every meal begins with Laffa bread baked in the taboon, served alongside hummus and salatim; mezze; skewers cooked over charcoal and a Pomegranate Lamb Shoulder.
He also runs several other restaurants with his business partner Steven Cook. These include Dizengoff, Percy Street Barbecue, and Federal Donuts, a fried chicken and donut chain.
So what can you get for Passover from Abe Fisher?
