On the west side of Atlanta, the city’s most anticipated restaurant is set to open its doors this Thursday, July 25. Aziza, a modern Israeli concept from restaurateur Tal Baum, will be a culinary experience like no other. Upon opening the restaurant’s massive wooden door, guests will immediately be transported to a beautiful, romantic space with arched entryways, luxurious fabrics, and dimmed lighting. Between the inviting décor and the delicious smells coming from the restaurant’s wood-burning oven in its open kitchen, you will feel as if you have been welcomed into someone’s home in Israel.
Explore Israeli culinary culture through small plates including a variety of hummus dishes; Halumi with tomato, Pearson Farms peaches, and pecan dukka; Roasted Eggplant with charred tahina, Pearson Farm peach amba, pickles, and egg; Kibbeh Nayyeh (a traditional Israeli lamb dish) with bulgar crisp, sumac onions, and Ras Al Hanout; Watermelon with feta, harrisa, salad burnet, and nigella seeds; and Octopus with sunchokes, allepo, and squid ink tahini. If that isn’t enough to whet your appetite, larger dishes include Chicken Tagine with Nablus olives, lemon, and fingerling potato; Half Duck (Roasted breast and confit leg) with Moroccan carrots and spiced jus; Lamb Strip with Basmati rice, sultanas, hawayej, and green tomato; Trout with charred fairytale, brown butter, lemon, and pistachio; and the m25 (a 30-day dry-aged 48oz. porterhouse) with fire-roasted vegetables.

If a seated dining experience isn’t what you’re looking for, head to accompanying falafel stand, Falafel Nation, set to open on July 25 in conjunction with Aziza. The fresh, colorful space will be serving up a limited menu of to-go items including hummus bowls, falafel, sabich (an Israeli eggplant sandwich), and other vegetarian street food. Soak up the rest of the summer in the patio area with quick grab-and-go bites during the day. Then, follow the bright neon beacon to your new late-night addiction after a night out.
