Spring’s holidays are here, and while we may not be able to physically get together as we practice social distancing, there are still ways to celebrate at home with the help of local Lincoln Square spots. Enjoy your own special meal for Easter and Passover, video chat with family, and support local eateries, too.

Breads Bakery is still offering patrons a hearty menu for Passover, including sweet and savory options. You can purchase individual items like flourless cookies, matzo ball soup, and flourless cakes in store (1890 Broadway) on a daily basis. For more information, contact Breads Bakery via phone at (212) 633-2253 or visit the website

Rosa Mexicano (61 Columbus Ave) is serving a two-course Mexican Passover menu through Saturday, April 11, offering a Mexican variation on the traditional Pesach holiday. The restaurant is also offering a two-course dinner menu on Sunday, April 12 for Easter. Both holiday meals feature a special salmon or brisket entree selection. Click here for the menus. These options are available for delivery and pick-up. 

Place an order with Lincoln Ristorante for Easter candy/chocolate baskets to brighten you and your loved one’s spirits for this spring holiday, even during quarantine. Choose from three options of house-made Easter candies (by Patina) which you can either pick up from Lincoln Ristorante (142 West 65th Street) or have delivered to your home locally on Friday, April 10 or Saturday, April 11. You can also take advantage of Lincoln Ristorante’s delivery/take-out menu for a delicious Easter dinner.

If you can, pick up groceries from Whole Foods Market Columbus Circle (10 Columbus Circle), currently open from 8:00am to 9:00pm (guests 60+ can shop starting at 7:00am), or Gourmet Garage (155 West 66th Street), currently open daily from 8:00am to 8:00pm, to prepare your own Easter or Passover meal at home. Two great grocery spots for produce, meats, baking essentials, and even some specialty foods and essentials for a Seder, you’ll also end up with delicious leftovers as we continue to social distance. Both of our local delis, Melissa’s Gourmet Deli (1879 Broadway) and Alan’s Marketplace (27 Columbus Ave), also have a small selection of groceries.

Also, during Passover and Easter, our restaurants still serving delivery/take-out options can help make the occasion more special at home. You can get a nice dinner and even drinks at some spots to enjoy alone (or while virtually chatting with friends and family) or with your spouse/partner. Click here to check out restaurants and eateries offering food for take-out and/or delivery. And click here to see some special deals from a few local dining spots that might help make the occasion.

You can celebrate both Passover and Easter with some of Lincoln Square’s Houses of Worship with virtual services, too. Check out our neighborhood guide for a list of local churches and synagogues and check out our events calendar for some virtual services we’ve found.

While we can’t plan a dinner together with family and friends for these spring holidays, you can still enjoy a special meal and sweets thanks to our wonderful local businesses.
