Golda Meier's Last Meal New York 2007 - Shalom
Golda's dirty little secret is that she was once a schoolteacher in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. To teach her about the more exotic types of Jewish diaspora food, we're taking her to Shalom, a kosher Uzbeki joint that replaced Beautiful Bukhara not long ago. Happily, the hummus and the bulging manti dumplings remain the stars on a menu that also provides plenty of cheap charcoal-grilled kebabs. We're not offering the portly Israeli premier any of the wonderful greasy fries heaped with garlic and parsley, though.
