| Teddy & the Bully Bar

D.C. restaurants get back into the holiday groove this spring with lots of family-style spreads, a la carte or prix fixe specials, and carryout options that honor Passover, the annual, week-long festival that celebrates the Jews’ freedom from slavery.

Passover starts with a ceremonial dinner called a seder, where the story of Jewish exodus from Egypt is told. Whether a traditional Passover feast calls for potato latkes, kosher wines, matzo ball soup, braised brisket, gelfite fish, chopped liver, macaroons, or everything in between, D.C. restaurants, markets, and delis cater to a range of dine-in or to-go preferences during the duration of the holiday. Passover’s major dietary restriction is the ban of leavened bread, or bread made from wheat, oat, spelt, rye, or barley flour.

Here are local places preparing Passover meals and dishes, including those offering specials for the first two nights, when most seders are held. Passover starts Wednesday, April 5 and runs through Thursday, April 13.
