New York Buzz: Haute Cuisine During Passover

Passover is upon us, which means Jews around the world are simultaneously feasting and avoiding bread and most grain products. (It's a tough balance.) For visitors (and locals) in New York City who want to enjoy a quality meal and keep kosher (which, admittedly, can be another tough balance), here are some good Manhattan restaurants that follow the strict Kosher-for-Passover rules:

Talia’s Steakhouse and Bar 
This Glatt Kosher restaurant in Upper West has special menus for different days during the week (including BBQ spare ribs and chicken schnitzel), a dedicated steak menu (five different cuts!) and even a kosher-for-Passover bar menu. (Yes, you can get an appletini without any guilt.)

Abigael’s 
This midtown eatery is reportedly the world's largest kosher restaurant, and is offering a special multi-course menu during Passover that includes a steak salad, several styles of steak, several varieties of salmon and a roast duck that looks amazing.

Le Marais 
Right in the theater district, Le Marais is a popular French restaurant (reportedly named for a Jewish neighborhood in Paris) that happens to be kosher. The Passover menu includes coq au vin, pan-roasted salmon, steak au poivre and ribeye steaks. 

For traditional, old-school Jewish comfort food (think schnitzels and matzoh-ball soup), try Eighteen Restaurant, Taam Tov or Mendy's (a popular old-school deli chain).
