About the Chef
In the 8 months since Musi has been open, it has already created a higher standard in the Philadelphia food world for using local, hyper-seasonal produce, cheeses and meats. During this short time, Ari Miller has been named Best Chef by Philadelphia Magazine. He draws upon flavors honed after a decade spent in Israel, but with restraint. Musi also creates a collaborative space, drawing together our cheesemakers, butchers and foragers together with Pennsylvania’s very small beer and linens producers. Musi hosts pop ups frequently, such as the Frizwit, which brings in a local brewery and puts out the very best cheesesteak in Philadelphia (made with responsibly sourced Primal Supply beef and Abundantly Good cheese of an upcycled milk program). As Hillary Dixler Canavan put it, while naming Musi one of Eater’s 16 Best New Restaurants: “Musi prioritizes the things that diners ought to demand — a menu informed by local product and a kitchen connected to the region’s best purveyors — but the restaurant doesn’t beat you over the head with it.”
