Celebrate Easter & Passover 2018

Mar 28, 2018
Ready to celebrate? Passover begins this Friday, March 30 and Easter Sunday is this coming April 1, so there's plenty of reason to get together with friends and family this weekend. Better yet, a number of Lincoln Square businesses have goodies to host dinners, offer sweet presents, and commemorate the holidays. 
 
To prepare your own holiday feast, visit Whole Foods Market in The Shops at Columbus Circle to shop a great selection of ingredients for a delicious Passover Seder or an Easter Sunday meal (you can order catering, too). Plus, you can find goodies and candies to make a fun Easter basket and seasonal flowers for decoration. Gourmet Garage at 155 West 66th Street, between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue, likewise sells many essential ingredients for cooking great meals for these holiday celebrations.

At Breads Bakery, 1890 Broadway between 62nd and 63rd Streets, you can place an order for delicious, flour-less cookies and cakes. You may place an order by calling (212) 633-2253. Check out the menu here.  

To create a wonderful Easter basket, you can visit IT'SUGAR at 1870 Broadway north of 61st Street or Sugarfina Candy Boutique on the ground floor of The Shops at Columbus Circle for all of your sweet treat needs. Plus, La Maison du Chocolat, on the ground floor of The Shops at Columbus Circle, has a rich chocolate take on the traditional Easter sweets, offering assorted gift boxes, Easter bunnies and eggs, and more. 

Also in The Shops at Columbus Circle, Papyrus on the third floor is selling holiday cards for both Passover and Easter as well as gifts, stuffed animals, and Easter baskets. Pick up a bunny eared basket for Easter egg hunting or bunny and chick wind-up toys. Plus, walk across the way to Amazon Books to find Easter and Passover themed children's books. 

Boulud Sud at 20 West 64th Street is hosting its first ever Passover Seder. The restaurant is honoring the holiday by offering a traditional three-course Prix Fixe Passover menu ($89 per person). The menu will be available on Friday, March 30 and Saturday, March 31 from 5:00pm to 11:00pm. Click here to see the menu. Also, on Easter Sunday, enjoy a three-course Prix Fixe brunch menu for $48 per person, featuring dishes including Eggs Florentine and Spicy Green Shakshouka. Click here to see the menu.
