Where To Book A Rosh Hashanah Restaurant Dinner
If you’re looking forward to Rosh Hashanah dinner – but not necessarily to cooking – fear not. Restaurants around the country are rolling out special menus for the High Holidays this year. Here are some of our favorites. Please note: None of these are kosher. Prices are per person, and don’t include taxes, beverages, or wine/alcohol. And some venues also offer kiddie menus.
Summer House Santa Monica, Chicago
Sunday September 29/Monday September 30
Usually a haven of seasonal California-style cuisine, Summer House Santa Monica gets trad for the holidays, with chopped liver and gefilte fish, matzo-ball soup, salmon, brisket, or chicken as mains, and family-style sides of latkes, tzimmes, kasha varnishkes, and couscous. Apple galette with cinnamon ice cream starts the new year on a sweet note.
Joe’s Seafood Prime Steak and Stone Crab, Washington DC Sunday, September 29 and Monday, September 30 $49.95 From the name, you’ve probably figure out this one’s not kosher. But Joe’s is offering a heart-warmingly traditional Rosh Hashanah dinner this year, including gefilte fish with horseradish; matzo ball soup; brisket; potato pancakes with homemade applesauce; and ginger-glazed carrots — fancy tzimmes, we think.
