Miami, get ready to meet the best hummus you’ve ever tried. Mike Solomonov and Steve Cook have decided to open an outpost of Dizengoff in Wynwood, right next door to the forthcoming Federal Donuts, as reported by Miami.com.
It will mark the third city and fourth location for the Israeli hummusiya, which started in Philly on Sansom Street in 2014, expanded to NYC’s Chelsea Market in 2016 and branched into the Fairmount Whole Foods later that year. Target opening for the Miami spot is this spring — and for those South Floridians seeking fried chicken and donuts, same goes for what will be the first FedNuts outside of Philly.
CookNSolo is on a tear of late; in addition to finally getting Rooster Soup Co. up and running, the partners just opened Goldie, a long-in-the-works falafel shop, and still run Philly’s acclaimed Zahav and Abe Fisher. Solomonov is also up for a 2017 James Beard for Outstanding Chef — he’ll find out at the awards ceremony this coming Monday.
