Zahav chef-owner Michael Solomonov’s latest offers a wickedly great combo: fried chicken and doughnuts. The 24-hour-salt-cured chicken is double-fried for extra crispness and comes either spiced or glazed. The doughnuts come in two varieties: fried to order and rolled in sugar mixtures such as vanilla lavender, or stuffed-and-glazed “fancy” doughnuts in flavors like pomegranate-Nutella. Be warned: The chicken is ready at noon and often sells out.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
