Shop Newton for Easter & Passover
The Dining Car
The Dining Car's Passover Seder-To-Go, has us rethinking our Seder plans--and you may want to rethink yours too. Order their entire Passover feast, or pick and choose select items. From matzoh ball soup, to brisket, haroset, chopped liver, gefilte fish (scratch made—not the flubbery jarred kind), and mashed potatoes. For dessert there’s a Bette Noir flourless chocolate cake with white chocolate ganache and raspberry coulis. (Sound familiar? This is the stellar offering that sold out over Valentine’s Day). And, of course, there are coconut macaroons and chocolate-coated matzoh, too. The only catch: Passover orders must be placed online by Monday, April 3.
