An Italian-American Passover Meal

La Morra - Facebook

Italian cuisine meets Jewish tradition on La Morra’s Passover prix fixe. For each of the eight holiday nights (Monday, April 10th through Tuesday, April 18th), diners can sit down to dishes that blend the best of both gastronomic histories. With options like lamb shank salami and matzah with ricotta, the menu (below) presents a happy culinary marriage in four courses. Reservations can be made for $40 per person (wine pairings are an additional $20) starting at 5:30pm by calling 617.739.0007.
