Springtime observances in this year of COVID-19 won't involve one traditional component—gathering with others. All the more reason to ensure the food's good.
(Note: These menus have varying levels of dietary observance, so observe and interrogate before you order.)
Schmaltzy’s in Fremont packs up a four-person seder for $225: Choose between roast chicken or braised brisket with a host of sides (gefilte fish, matzo ball soup, tzimmes, and kale and leek potato kugel) plus cake.
Eden Hill Provisions’ four-person Easter brunch box ($120) includes quiche, cinnamon rolls, breakfast potatoes, “lavender lamb ham” and a mimosa kit. Add on a bloody mary kit, or 25 plastic eggs already filled with candy.
Tilth has a cool online ordering form for its three Easter dinner options (ham, salmon, or whole roast cauliflower) that lets you browse and select your preferred salad, vegetable, bread, side carb, and dessert situations. Preorder by April 7.
Bakery Nouveau is sticking to its tradition of making a cavalcade of Easter sweets: hot cross buns, spring cakes, chocolate crosses, chocolate eggs, and two sizes of Easter bunny rendered in dark, milk, or white chocolate. Order by April 9 at any of the three locations.
