BURNT ENDS. They won't always have these amazing brisket trimmings on hand, but if you ask for them by name and they can accommodate, you won't be sorry.
Citysearch Editorial Review – Before Michael Solomonov opened his award-winning Zahav, he took his kitchen staff to Israel to taste the flavors of the country; this time he and executive chef Erin O’Shea field tripped to Texas to tour the down-home barbeque pits that make Texas grill what it is. The achievement here in Philly is authentic pit BBQ’ed brisket, ribs and chicken, smoked in-house and served with some good old comfort sides in a sprawling space that looks like it just got a nice scrub-down. There are more craft beers and bourbon cocktails on the menu than food, so leave your vegetarian friends behind and get ready for a meal that’s just as deliberate and relaxed as a languid Texas drawl.
BBQ is good, rest needs work – Took a group of 7 to the new hot spot on 11/20 and was seriously disappointed. While the brisket and pork belly are fairly accurate, the prices and beer are hard to swallow. Real Texas BBQ, in Texas, costs about $8-12 a plate and you get sides with it. At Percy Street, a 6-oz bowl of coleslaw was $7 and it took 2 lb brisket, 1.5 lb pork belly, 1 lb ribs, and 7 'large' sides to leave 7 people hungry. I liked the adventurous beers, but my friends just wanted a miller lite, so they didn't drink. We ended up spending $33 pp and were still hungry. NEEDS WORK!!
