Last Minute Passover Seder Reservations Still Available

With several pounds of brisket in the fridge and a kitchen table loaded with horseradish, apples, matzo, matzo ball soup mix and every bottle of kosher wine my Safeway had left, I'm pretty sure that the only thing I'm not making for Passover seder is reservations.

But after looking at the Passover menu for Eddie's House in Scottsdale, I'm thinking I know what I'm saying at the end of my seder:

Next year, in a restaurant.

If you're looking for a seder this year, I'm out of spots at my table -- and Havana Cafe's completely booked, too. But Eddie has a few spaces left tonight, if you don't mind waiting til after 8, and more availability at dinner time throughout the week.

The price is $44.95 for adults and $19.95 for children 12 and under, and along with a seder plate, charoset and all the matzo you can eat, the menu includes:

FIRST COURSE
