Passover begins tonight at sundown, and for those observing, the holiday entails one week of keeping kosher. The first thing to go is chametz, but don’t let that stop you from dining out. Some Atlanta restaurants have curated special menus for this celebration.
For a quick lunch:
MetroFresh is known for their rotating soups, and this week they are serving up a Guinness and brisket soup.
**This is not Kosher, however they are simply serving it during Passover. **
For one night only:
Tonight Ecco created a family style four-course prix fixe dinner for $40 per person that includes European-style saffron matzo ball soup. The General Muir’s second night Sedar Passover dinner takes place Tuesday, and they may still have a few reservations left.
Rosa Mexicana does an annual Mexican Passover menu that will run from now to the 22nd. The four-course prix fixe is $42 per person. The special Gefilte fish will make an appearance on Lure ‘s menu from now until April 22.
For your sweet tooth:
Alon’s makes a special raspberry vanilla mousse with almond cake and fresh berries that was requested so often they added it to the menu year-round. A pop-up for the holiday: their chocolate-covered matzah.
For a crowd:
Sprinkles Cupcakes is selling a dozen flourless chocolate cupcakes adorned with the Star of David for only today and tomorrow. Or check out Buckhead Bread Company’s menu for take-home Passover specialties, available until the 22nd.
