Passover is a holiday that brings friends and family together, and this year, though we might feel worlds apart, it’s still possible to celebrate—regardless of quarantine. Some of L.A.’s best restaurants want to cater your seder with slow-roasted brisket and other specialties of the holiday, which runs April 8 to 16, —and after all, food is a true unifier. No matter where you’re spending it this year, here’s where to order Passover dinner for pickup and delivery in Los Angeles.
