Chag Sameach: What Phoenix Restaurants Are Doing About Passover

Passover, or Pesach, begins the night of Friday, April 19, and ends April 27. If you're celebrating or cooking during the week — or better yet, hosting a seder (the ceremonial dinner on the first two nights of the holiday) and don't want to spend hours in the kitchen — we've got you covered.

Valley eateries are offering shortcuts and tasty traditional dishes. Or if you want to skip the dishes and enjoy a kosher-for-Passover meal out on the town, the same goes.

Passover dinner offerings from AJ's include beef brisket with root vegetables.

AJ's Fine Foods

Multiple Locations


The bistro at AJ's Fine Foods is offering Passover dinners for purchase from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on April 19. Selections include roasted pistachio-crusted chicken breast with a rustic apple compote, tender braised beef brisket with natural root vegetables au jus, and grilled salmon served with an herb carrot orange zest. You can also check with your location to see the availability of potato pancakes, matzo ball soup, kugel, and apple-nut charoset (a fruit and nut mixture). Orders of six or more need to be reserved by April 16.

Chompie's

Various Locations


Chompie's is providing three different ways to enjoy Passover — food-to-go options, holiday dishes available to order in during those eight days, and a special Passover dinner the first two nights. If you're hosting a big crowd, you might be interested in one of two meal packages serving eight people each. Individual meals are also available (with a minimum of six needed for takeout preorders), along with a la carte items like matzo ball soup, chopped liver, gefilte fish, and brisket.

At the restaurant, you'll want to chow down on two different types of matzo brei (matzo fried with eggs) or snack on a Passover bagel with cream cheese. There are also numerous flourless desserts at the bakery. Dine-in and takeout are available, but expect crowds on April 19. On April 19 and 20, three locations (Paradise Valley Mall, Chandler, and Scottsdale) are hosting a Passover dinner from 5 p.m. to close. Think starter and choice of soup, entree, potato dish, and vegetable served with a matzo plate, wine or grape juice, and dessert. Reservations are recommended.
