Chabad Rabbi Moshe Meir Lipszyc was such a fan of the kosher Mediterranean food served at Pita Xpress, he convinced owners Noam Sagiv and Edna Benyosef to open another establishment in the heart of Ft. Lauderdale. In April of 2021, Noam and Edna opened PX Grill, an upscale Mediterranean kosher restaurant, ready and able to serve the Jewish community.
With its concrete polished floors and its clean gray, gold, and black color scheme, PX Grill has a very rustic feel. It’s the sort of place where you can be casual or fancy, and not clash with the vibe or décor. PX Grill is a classy establishment, perfect for a night out. Despite it’s fancier feel, the food is simple and reasonably priced. One of the biggest draws is Greek - Israeli night! Every Thursday, musician Yossi comes and plays Israeli music on his bouzouki (a lute with a flat-topped round body and a long neck). After his performance, its open mic night, so be ready to show off your pipes! If you’re nervous, try some liquid courage, because PX has cocktails. Eventually, Noam plans to have PX Grill switch over to a lounge at night, with live music and dancing.

The décor is upscale, whereas the food is typical Mediterranean fare. A popular dinner dish is the whole fried branzino, which comes with a choice of two sides (rice and okra, home cut fries, Israeli salad, or grilled vegetables. For lunch, the pastrami burger is popular. It comes on a bun with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and a side of home-cut fries. People also like the lamb chops and the mixed grill dish, which is ground beef kabobs, grilled chicken, and baby chicken, served with a choice of two side dishes.
PX Grill is open all day long, even for lunch. In fact, they have a lunch special. They also deliver, do take-out, and offer catering. They’ve hosted a few parties too.
Those looking for a fancier place with simple, affordable food need look no further. PX Grill is exactly what you are looking for. Don’t forget to stop by Thursday night for some tunes!
