Like 2020, this year’s Passover might involve yet another Zoom seder and less gathering than you’re used to - but there are still other ways to celebrate the holiday at home, like with an excellent meal from one of these SF and East Bay restaurants. Here are nine spots where you can order everything from brisket and seder plates to Manischewitz sangria for takeout, delivery, or dine-in.
One Market Restaurant
One Market’s four-course Passover meal comes with matzo ball soup, smoked brisket, and flourless chocolate cake. It’s $59 per person (they also have a smaller kid’s-sized version for $29), and you can pick it up on March 27th or between March 31st and April 3rd. There’s also the option to add on loaded latkes from their New York deli pop-up, Mark ’n Mike’s. Pre-order here.
Whether you’re looking for chopped liver, potato kugel, brisket, or coconut macaroons, Wise Sons has you covered. Orders must be placed here by 12pm two days in advance for delivery or pick up at any of their Bay Area locations. Wise Sons also offers national shipping for their Passover Package (it includes brisket, chicken soup, and potato kugel, and serves four), and a downloadable Haggadah for your seder.
Boichik Bagels in Berkeley is selling matzo bark (matzo covered in house-made caramel, chocolate, almonds, and sea salt), matzo, and horseradish for Passover. Note that they’ll be closed March 27th to April 6th, so make sure to plan ahead, and pre-order for pick up here.
For $59 per person, you can order Canela’s four-course Passover dinner. You’ll get apple-pecan charoset, egg salad, and horseradish dip with matzo, as well as matzo ball soup, and roasted duck breast or white fish filet.

For Passover, Che Fico has a set menu (it’s $200 and serves four), which includes matzo ball soup, brisket, potatoes, and cabbage. The vegetarian option comes with stuffed peppers instead of brisket.
