Easter and Passover Menus to Feast On This Coming Holiday Weekend | Rye & Rye Brook Moms

Where to go to order the tastiest treats you don’t have to make yourself.

Published: 03/23/2018

With Easter and the third night of Passover both falling on April 1 this year, you’d be a fool trying to whip up holiday meals better than what some of Westchester’s best chefs have to offer. To save your time — and your sanity — here are a few of our favorite places to grab holiday classics that might not be homemade, but will still leave a smile on grandma’s face.



Plates — Larchmont

Plates will be serving Easter Brunch from 1 a.m. until 3 p.m. The three-course prix fixe menu includes appetizers such as deviled eggs and cannelloni Bolognese, entrees like pancetta-and-artichoke pizza and a breakfast “Easter Burger,” and desserts like blondie sundays and strawberry-rhubarb crumble. Pricing is $45 for adults (includes a mimosa or bloody Mary) and $15 for children.

The Ritz-Carlton New York, Westchester — White Plains


The Ritz-Carlton’s Lounge will host a gourmet brunch of fresh fruit and pastries, make-you-own omelets, and a selection of larger plates like rosemary-garlic-crusted lamb or an aged Gruyere and leek tart, all for $65 per adult and $32 per child (tax and tip included!). The hotel will also hold an Easter egg hunt with plenty of candy treasures and a visit from the Easter Bunny.

Boro6 Wine Bar — Hastings-on-Hudson

One of Westchester’s trendiest brunch spots, Boro6 is offering an Easter Sunday brunch menu from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with everything from soft boiled egg platters and Tuscan kale salads to charcuterie and “boozy hot chocolate.”

Moderne Barn — Armonk

Chef Ethan Kostbar has crafted a simple yet classic brunch menu to be served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in addition to Moderne Barn’s regular menu (being served all day). Breakfast items like stuffed French toast and “The Westchester” (scrambled eggs with breakfast sausage, house-cured bacon, tomatoes and seven-grain toast) complement dinner options like lamb schnitzel and blackened salmon burgers. For a little of both, we highly recommend Biscuits and “Ribs,” sort of like biscuits-and-gravy meets eggs Benedict: buttermilk biscuits, spinach, prime rib ragout, poached eggs, and a nice bearnaise sauce. Oh my.

Empire City Casino — Yonkers

Yonkers’ favorite raceway and casino will be offering several special throughout their multiple dining spots. Try the prime rib or glazed ham at Dan Rooney’s Sports Bar, lamb ragout or lobster at Nonno’s, roast leg of lamb in the food court, or even a Latin spiced prime rib at Lil Cocina (and plenty of other items).

Dubrovnik — New Rochelle

This Croatian fine dining restaurant is offering an à la carte lunch and dinner menu from noon to 9 p.m. with appetizers like tuna tartar, veal risotto, and marinated branzino, and mains such as sauteed soft shell crab, rotisserie lamb, aged rib eye, and wild salmon. As always, finish your meal off with a nice palacinke, or perhaps some homemade cheesecake.

Plates — Larchmont

Yup. After they finish brunch at 3 p.m., the Plates staff is hard at work on dinner. From 4:30p.m. to 8:30 p.m., the restaurant will serve their full, regular menu along with additional Easter specials!

Siegel Bros. Marketplace — Mount Kisco

Not feeling like going out? Then order in! This tried-and-true, century-old market has the freshest ingredients and prepared foods around, and they’ve cooked up a holiday catering menu so good Aunt Bertha couldn’t tell you didn’t make it yourself. Soups, salads, apps, sides, mains, and even desserts are all available with handy serving size suggestions to help you dole out enough food for everybody. Just make sure to get your orders in by Monday, March 26 for pickup any time after 2 p.m. on March 31.

Xaviar’s X2O — Yonkers

X2O has crafted a prix fixe Easter menu as decadent as you’d expect from Chef Peter Kelly. First courses include options like seafood crepe, black truffle and green onion risotto, warm asparagus flan, and braised short rib ravioli with foie gras. These are followed by entrees like wild king salmon with honey and sake glaze, roast duckling or locally-raised chicken, roast rack of baby lamb, and classic chateaubriand. All of this is followed up by dessert, things like Belgian chocolate timbale, a sweet “Easter egg” made from mango and coconut mousse in a caramel “nest,” or a passion fruit sabayon tart. Cost is $75 per person.



Siegel Bros. Marketplace — Mount Kisco

Come on, you didn’t really think the Siegel Bros. would leave you hanging, did you? Certified kosher for Passover, the catering menu includes borscht and chicken and matzo ball soup, gefilte fish, Israeli-style hummus, matzo-stuffed mushrooms, roast leg of lamb, brisket, salmon, kugel, sweet potato soufflé, and amazing desserts such as matzo brittle and two different kinds of macaroons!

Epstein’s of Hartsdale — Hartsdale

One of Westchester’s favorite Jewish delis for years, Epstein’s is running a special five course seder dinner for just $25.99 per person (eight-person minimum). Seder dinner comes with your choice from their regular menu of any one appetizer, one entrée, and two sides, plus chicken consommé soup with matzo balls, cranberry compote or tsimmis, matzo, and your choice of dessert!
