You would be forgiven if you forgot two public holidays coming up this week: Passover, which begins on Wednesday evening April 8th, and Easter on Sunday April 12th. Whether you’ve lost track of the month, couldn’t find any ingredients in the store, or just want to move out this year while supporting a local restaurant, here are seven options in town. And when you’re all home, you can donate a meal to a friend or family in need.
Ash’Kara Offers a Passover dinner for two ($ 55) or four ($ 100). Each kit can be reheated at home and contains matzo ball soup, beef brisket with stewed jus, roasted root vegetables, Israeli vegetables with avocado za’atar dressing and a variety of biscuits.
