James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Solomonov and his business partner Steven Cook are doubling down on Wynwood, opening a location of their popular hummusiya Dizengoff (250 NW 24th Street) right next door to Federal Donuts just weeks after its Miami debut. This marks the fourth location for the mini hummus chain, and the first ever location outside of the northeast.
Named after one of Tel Aviv’s boulevards and modeled on the hummus stalls found around in Israel, the star of the Dizengoff menu is hummus. The hummus — which Eater NY's senior critic Robert Sietsema called "the best hummus in town" — is made fresh daily and topped with rotating garnishes like corn masabacha with chickpeas and tehina and lamb merguez with cabbage, served alongside hearth-baked pita, chopped Israeli salad, and pickles. A few sides are offered like Israeli-style vegetable salads, plus Lemonnana, a Israeli frozen mint lemonade, draft beer and Israeli wine. And on Sundays, Dizengoff serves shakshuka, the North African dish of eggs baked in a spicy tomato and pepper stew.
The space boasts a red counter, Israeli street posters splashed across the walls and custom mirrored tiling, with ten seats at both counter and cafe tables for dine-in and takeout.
Dizengoff Wynwood is now open Sunday to Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Thursday to Saturday until 10 p.m. For more information call 305-573-9292.
