Last year’s Passover was likely one of the earliest holidays to go virtual. With COVID-19 still in its early days, families were relegated to Zoom seders. Here’s a roundup of LA restaurants offering take-out for the spring holiday, which begins at sundown on Saturday, March 27.

  • Silver Lake’s Freedman’s is offering a preordered takeout menu, with dishes like glazed brisket, waffle latkes, roasted chicken, and a spinach and artichoke matzo kugel. Order via Tock.
  • Brentwood’s Baltaire will prepare a $250 Passover menu to-go. Order by March 27 to get the spring chicory salad, matzo ball soup, braised beef brisket, and roasted baby heirloom carrots. EDIT: the cutoff ordering date has already passed.
  • Suzanne Tracht’s annual Passover seder takeout at her West Hollywood restaurant Jar returns, with an a la carte menu with options like charoset, cedar smoked salmon, chicken schnitzel, and lamb shank with port star anise and cinnamon. Orders require 48 hour notice on Tock.

In other news:

  • Los Angeles is hot for fried fish sandwiches, and Los Angeles Times columnist Jenn Harris dove deep on a quest for fried fish sandwiches throughout Southern California. A little over a week ago, L.A. Taco published a map to find the city’s finest fish sandwiches, too.
  • Vegans rejoice. Joaquin Flores, whose family-owned the plant-based pop-up Tacos Sin Carma, created a new pop-up called Masaya, which also carries an LA-street vendor-inspired carrot hot dog. L.A. Taco spoke to Flores about his residency at Amara Kitchen.
  • Long Beach Coffee & Tea is closing this weekend. The inclusive cafe announced the news on Instagram on March 23, and opened in Downtown Long Beach in 2017.
  • The Vietnamese-American owner of Lacquered in Long Beach was threatened on Yelp last week. The customer posted a one-star review and justified violence against Asians over the lack of popcorn chicken on the menu. LA Times has the full story.
  • Could wellness destination Desert Hot Springs become California’s “Napa Valley of Cannabis?” Coachella Valley growers seem to think so, reports KCRW.
  • This Friday, burger pop-up Golden State will take a residency in Cofax Coffee on Fairfax, and, if all goes well, could become semi-permanent, according to its Instagram.
