    Despite the cold and rising snow on Thursday, Basil Pizza and Wine Bar hosted a multicultural celebration of food and wine at a grand debut of their new menu with a middle eastern & Israeli flair.

    While enjoying the wine, jazz, and hot toddies, guests had the opportunity to get a taste of the new menu and speak with the master chefs behind the incredible new dishes. Basil’s executive chef Kimberly Plafke collaborated with two international chefs, Chef Eran Harel and Chef Avi Steinitz, to introduce dishes with a Mediterranean twist to menu locals already know and love.

    The restaurant is known for having pioneered the Kosher fine dining experience. Its unique menu, while maintaining the highest Kosher standards, appeals to a large broad crowd from all across New York. With the new additions to the menu, Basil proves once again their knack for upping the bar in the Kosher dining circuit.

    “We’re constantly reinventing ourselves and outdoing ourselves,” says owner Danny Branover. “Our new menu is well balanced because it’s a fusion from all over the world. We have Israeli Mediterranean influences, twists on classic Italian pasta, and a Mexican influence with a chipotle cream sauce. You have to really experience it and enjoy it. We’re only moving higher and higher, we hope people will come and appreciate it.”

    The popular Crown Heights restaurant welcomed politicians, bloggers and foodies.

    According to Chef Kim Plafke, some of the old favorites will be returning to the menu as well, including an updated version of the wildly popular squash soup and some of the signature pizzas, such as kale and fire, the Bianca, and a “really interesting version of the mushroom pizza everybody loved before.”

    Some of the dishes the guests enjoyed included a fish Shawarma in Laffa with Tahini and roasted vegetables, a goat cheese and eggplant cigar, and an array of desserts by Sous Chef Khaled Abu Sbeitan.
