Passover seders typically mean gathering around the table with a seder plate, your family and plenty of red wine. But for many, the holiday is going to be different this year. Instead of going to a friend’s or relative’s house, many of us will have to make do with what we have at home, or order in.
The following restaurants are offering Passover meals to go. For availability, and if you’re keeping kosher, please confirm with restaurants before placing your orders.
Akasha (Culver City)
The restaurant has a seder menu for takeout and delivery designed to feed up to six people. The $95 dinner for two includes braised brisket or chicken tagine with roasted potatoes and carrots, broccolini and a seder plate.
