Sunday, September 17, Aziza is hosting a Fall Equinox & Rosh Hashanah Dinner to celebrate new beginnings in honor of the two occasions. The menu is $90 per person, and reservations can be booked here from 5-10pm.

Located in West Midtown, Aziza (“happiness” in Arabic) offers modern Israeli cuisine with fresh takes on traditional dishes, while paying homage to Founder Tal Baum’s childhood in Israel. This dinner will celebrate the season’s harvest and incorporate the restaurant’s staple flavors, all  with a particular focus on 10 symbolic Rosh Hashanah food items through various dishes & courses.
