I was recently asked to write a Round-Up of Passover Seders in New York City for The Strong Buzz. See a recap below, and check out the full article here.
“The Strong Buzz Guide to Passover: The Best Seder Fare for Serious Foodies”
For years, you’ve had to put up with eating gefilte fish and chopped liver at your family’s Passover Seder. Fear not, we have some great alternatives for you this year! For those of you who call New York City home, are unable to travel for the holiday, or just want to introduce your family to something new, many fantastic restaurants will be offering Passover Seder options in the city. The Strong Buzz's Rachel Barbarotta has put together a serious list to help you decide where to go for grub that will make up for all the times you had to pretend to love your Aunt’s leaden matzo balls.
