- Complimentary chef's choice appetizer when you dine at the restaurant
This new Pennsport eatery is the brainchild of Chef Ari Miller, who named it for his favorite Tel Aviv fishmonger. A native of Bucks County, Miller went to Israel as a youth, working on a kibbutz and waiting tables before becoming a food writer for the Jerusalem Post. He then transitioned into the professional kitchen, working at The Minzar, Tel Aviv’s legendary 24-hour bar, where he learned food preparation from Eastern European classics (sausages, pickling, fermenting) to North African cuisine (whole animal use) to Middle Eastern standards (hummus, spices, salads). Back in Philadelphia, he cooked at High Street on Market, Percy Street Barbecue, Watkins Drinkery, and Lost Bread Co. before opening Musi in February 2019. Philadelphia Magazine has listed Musi as one of it's 50 Best Restaurants, and Eater, citing signature dishes like beef heart tartare, pate served with a soft pretzel, mustard, and pears, and orange blossom malabi (custard) with honey and thyme, has named Musi BYOB one of Philly Hottest Restaurants for May '19.
