Passover

Passover at the Grotto ~ Friday, March 30 thru Saturday, April 7

Our two most requested menus at the Grotto are Passover and Feast of the Seven Fishes.  This year, for the feast, we went deep into the Italian American repertoire for inspiration.  But for Passover, we are going deep with Near Eastern influences of Syria plus a touch of north Africa w/Moroccan touches. Of course, Gefilte Fish & Matzoh Ball Soup, vaguely resembling my mom’s recipes, are included.

We will be serving our Passover feast from Friday, March 30 thru Saturday, April 7.  The feast will be served family style and you can ask for a round of seconds on any course.  The menu is kosher style and we try to follow both Ashkenazi & Sephardic restrictions, but we view these restrictions as goals and not commandments.

We will serve a slimmed down version of our regular menu the first three nights, and our full menu the rest of the holiday.   But don’t worry, all the usual favorites will be there for those not celebrating Passover or for those who think Passover isn’t complete without Burrata, Lasagnette & Tiramisu.  We don’t judge!  Some of the holiday specials will be available a la carte as well.

Kids can partake of the feast for half price or order from our regular kid’s menu.

Please do reserve early for these dates as being both a holiday and a weekend, we are sure to book up quickly.

The cost of the feast is $59.
