Passover Catering or Passover Restaurant Meals?

My husband is Jewish & we've always celebrated Passover with his family. Since we moved out here from the East Coast, we'll be on our own this year which is a good thing (thank goodness I don't have to endure another year of the telling of the Passover story with hand puppets...) and a bad thing (I have no idea how to cook brisket, etc).

So my question is: are there any good places in SF to buy delicious Passover food or treats that we can eat at home? And also, are there any good restaurants that are serving special Passover menus?

Thanks everyone!

  1. In the past three years, Joyce Goldstein has organized passover dinners--although not seder, as such. The first one was at Palio d'Asti, and the last two year have been at Perbacco. We've put together a small group and reserved a table each time--very enjoyable.

    You might check the Perbacco website to see if something's planned this year.

    1. i just got an email from delfina alerting me to its passover inspired special menu, though it is not kosher.

      "Brisket, Salt Cod Croquette, Pozzi Farm Lamb with Spring Peas and Polenta, Carciofi alla Giudea, Passover Ribollita, Chocolate-Dipped Matzoh, an Edible Seder Plate and more. Of course we'll serve Matzoh Ball Soup every night (with walnuts in the middle, a Stoll family recipe) along with many of our signature dishes. "

        Cool, thanks for the heads up. I should've mentioned that he doesn't keep any place with nonkosher food is fine by us! Just looking for Passover or Jewish-inspired food for the holiday.

          firefly usually does something for passover too.
