This year, two of spring’s biggest holidays—Passover and Easter—will be celebrated at home, away from restaurants, family gatherings and parties with friends. But, just because restaurants’ dining rooms are closed during the coronavirus pandemic doesn’t mean you have to completely cancel your dining plans.
Multiple restaurants across the region are offering Easter and Passover meals through their takeout and delivery services. Find 15 special offerings below.
The Easter and Passover season is one of celebration. Do so with offerings from Great American Restaurants (including Artie’s, Carlyle, Coastal Flats, Ozzie’s, Patsy’s American, Mike’s American, Jackson’s and Silverado), featuring prime rib packages available for pick up. You can also order the prime rib package for two which includes 1.5 pounds of prime rib with mushrooms, au jus and horseradish; spinach dip and chips; a family-style field green salad; mashed potatoes; three mini croissants; and two slices of white chocolate cake. Need more? Double it to make it a prime rib package for four, or get the prime rib roast for 5 pounds of prime rib. The meals are available for pickup from Friday, April 10 to Sunday, April 12, from noon to 5 p.m. // Locations vary
