The eight-day Jewish holiday Passover takes place soon starting on Friday, April 15 through Saturday, April 16. The centerpiece of Passover is the ritual intricate dinner the Seder during which the story of Exodus is recounted. For those who’d rather not cook, two Austin restaurants are offering Passover meals this year.

As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Follow the business’s rules, be sure to wear a mask, and tip well.
