Omnivore - Eating kosher for Passover

Kosher-friendly restaurants in Atlanta for Passover


Get rid of your ===chametz=== - Passover starts tonight with First Seder! Although the week-long holiday prohibits non-kosher food, there's plenty of deliciousness to go around. Wine, charoset, and roasted lamb, anyone?

Matzo, unleavened bread, is a staple of any Passover menu. In fact, it's requisite at first Seder. Traditionally, this is not the most appealing of grains. It is often made with only two ingredients: flour and water. But some slight variations make this bread considerably more bearable - especially if those variations involve balling it up and plopping it into some Matzo Ball Soup. ===For some flavorful, al dente Matzo Balls, check out Jewish culinary guru Joan Nathan's tutorial with the New York Times. ===

If you don't want to be stuck in the kitchen rolling up grain balls for the entirety of Passover, there are a few kosher-friendly restaurants around town. CBS Atlanta's list names some promising spots, like ===Ou for U===, ===The Kosher Gourmet===, and ===Fuego Mundo===. And ===Atlantic Station's Rosa Mexicano will be celebrating "Passover A La Mexicana,"=== with menu specials throughout the week and a cooking demo/luncheon on Saturday. This very well may be your only chance to eat beef tongue with Veracruz sauce and matzo fritters.
