As we noted last week, more restaurants are helping diners observe Passover with special menus, dishes, and even hosting their own Seders. See what OpenTable diners have been saying about Passover in reviews from the last few days.
* Cantina Feliz, Fort Washington, Pennsylvania: “We came for their very untraditional ‘Passover Feliz’ menu, but we’ll be back. Innovative cuisine and good value. Try the Santana Margarita.”
* Firefly, San Francisco, California: “It’s a Passover tradition for us to go to Firefly. I’m like Pavlov’s dog when it comes to the gefilte fish and chopped liver. We passed on the matzo ball soup, not because we don’t love it, but because we’re trying to watch our carbs. Then continuing with the hearty fare, we had the brisket and the lamb. Both were delicious with complementary vegetables and a delicious reduction. It’s a fave for me!”
* Firefly, San Francisco, California: “Wonderful Passover menu. Enjoyed sharing the first night Seder with so many others. Ran into many neighborhood friends. Lovely waitress.”
* Fork Restaurant, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: “We went for Passover dinner and the food was wonderful!!!”
* Manhattan in the Desert, Palm Springs, California: “Great deli food. Travelled a long distance for a wonderful Passover meal.”
* Metropolitan Club, Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts: “Went for the Passover menu. We were delighted with the choices and the whole meal.”
* Rosa Mexicano – South Beach, Miami Beach, Florida: “The Passover menu was delicious. We felt welcomed and the service was outstanding. The managers and chef and staff all did an amazing job learning about the traditions for the holiday. They even had a seder plate available, complimentary for each table. I was very impressed and look forward to dinning with them again. We are telling all our friends and family about our amazing experience. What a way to enjoy the holiday. Thank you all.”
* Thalassa, New York, New York: “We finished our multi-course meal with the baklava and chocolates and a delicious raisin wine. Excellent service and food from start to finish. They even accomodated our friend’s Passover dietary needs. Will definitely go back!”
* Toloache – Midtown, New York, New York: “Toloache offers a FABULOUS kosher for Passover menu. The brisket tacos were delicious as was the guacamole served with matzo. Also, I consider myself a bit of a margarita snob, and theirs was out of this world. Strong and yummy, a great combination.”
* Zahav, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: “Every visit to Zahav has new surprises. This time we had a group of friends and family and ordered the special Passover dinner. Homemade matzo, a special hummus with roasted hardboiled eggs, an array of interesting salads, salt cod kibbe and coffee braised brisket. Also, the best ‘Passover dessert.’ The wines that our waiter helped select were excellent. And the whole evening was fun, relaxing and delicious. The Passover menu changes every year (and is only available for one week), but it sure is worth a trip to Zahav to experience the surprises. The lighting seemed perfect and the music at a much more comfortable level, too. Can’t wait to go back for the braised lamb shoulder.”
