Peaster at STREET


Growing up in a half Jewish half Christian-like household, I’m a devout celebrator of the holiday known in my family as Peaster. This springtime mash-up only happens with both Passover and Easter fall within a week or so of each other, but when it does it’s a special occasion. There aren’t any unique Peaster rituals, per se. It’s more that sometimes a pink swirly-colored egg will make it onto the Seder plate, and we’re fine with that.

This year, we’re happy to report that Susan Feniger’s STREET is getting in on the Peaster action. On Saturday, April 7, Rabbi Eleanor Steinman from the congregation Kol Ami will be leading a Passover Seder complete with an eclectic menu that includes smoked fish and potato bimuelos, Moroccan vegetable tagine, and eggplant humus. The very next day, the Highland restaurant will host Easter brunch, featuring dishes dedicated to the almighty egg. The Seder price is $55 per person, where the Easter dishes are served a la carte. L’Chiam, God bless you, and bon appetit.
