Passover is going to look different this year across the country, especially in Washington, where the state’s stay-at-home order continues during the COVID-19 pandemic. But there are still a handful of restaurants and delis in Seattle with takeout and delivery options for those planning scaled down Seder dinners. Below is a guide on where to get matzah, gefilte fish, and other items for the holiday right up until the last minute, before Passover starts Wednesday.
Capitol Hill’s popular Jewish deli is still open for takeout orders, and has some a la carte items available for Passover pickup, including whole roasted rotisserie chicken, slow-roasted brisket with gravy, matzo ball soup, chopped liver, gefilte fish loaf, and charoset by the pound. Dingfelder’s notes that these are all kosher for Passover foods, but the kitchen is not kosher certified.
This new deli in the Frelard area (an offshoot of the Napkin Friends food truck) is closed temporarily right now, but is still accepting Passover meal orders through Monday. On the takeout and delivery menu are dishes such as braised brisket, potato kugel, and a selection of tzimmes. The cost is $225, and Schmaltzy’s says the meal will feed 4-5 people.
Queen Anne’s more casual offshoot of the fine-dining restaurant Eden Hill has $250 Passover meals to feed four people. These packages include black cod gefilte fish, roasted leg of lamb, roasted root vegetables, and matzah kugel. There is no shellfish, pork, or flour, but Eden Hill Provisions notes the meals are not kosher. Ordering available up to 4 p.m. Monday, and delivery is available.
For a $100 meal package (meant to feed two), Ballard’s constantly concept-shifting restaurant has the basics available for Passover dinners, including brisket, roasted chicken, gefilte fish, za’atar carrots, and matzo ball soup. Pickup is 2 p.m. on Wednesday.
This French restaurant in the Central District is cooking up Passover dinners to feed 3-4 people for $175 each, with items that include chicken liver mousse, brisket, gruyere kugel, and chocolate babka. Pickup is available on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.
