Last-Minute Passover Dining Guide

Passover begins tonight, and a few local restaurants are offering specials inspired by the traditions of the Jewish holiday. (Note that these do not necessarily follow Passover's strict dietary guidelines.)

For those who are observing Passover's dietary restrictions, going out to restaurants is likely not an option. To stock up on last-minute kosher-for-Passover groceries, try an area Whole Foods or Wegmans, both of which tend to have large selections.

For those who just want to eat some matzoh ball soup and delve a little bit into the traditions without necessarily keeping kosher for Passover, here are a few specials to consider. (Know of any other Passover specials? Leave a comment below.)

Cook (825 Washington St., Newton) — In addition to the regular menu, a few specials will be available from April 3 through April 10: matzoh ball soup, a lamb dish with pistachio charoset, and a flourless chocolate cake with coconut, almond, and matzoh.

Craigie on Main (853 Main St., Cambridge) — In addition to the regular menu, a variety of Passover dishes will be available from April 3 through April 11: matzoh meal lasagnette, spring green soup with Persian-spiced lamb meatballs, Sephardic chicken, Tony Maws' Baba Hannah's braised beef recipe, and more.

Georgetown Cupcake (83 Newbury St., Boston) — Serving macaroons through Passover. (Note: Macaroons are not macarons.)

Inna's Kitchen (19 Pelham St., Newton) — Closed on Saturday, April 4 but open for the rest of the holiday and serving "Passover style offerings, think matzoh lasagna."

La Morra (48 Boylston St., Brookline) — Offering an "Italian Kosher style Passover" four-course prix fixe from April 3 through April 11, with optional wine pairings. "Matzoh never tasted so good until you have had it with our homemade ricotta cheese!"
