Passover brisket -- better than bubbe.
Sundown April 14 marks the first night of Passover.

For Jewish people around the world, this eight-day holiday remembers their exodus from Egypt more than 3,000 years ago. Freed from slavery, our ancestors are said to have fled into the desert and could not bake their bread, which turned out hard and flat. For that reason, matzoh is eaten during Passover.

Of course, every holiday has its own food customs. The first two nights of Passover, many families gather at the dinner table for Seder, where the story of Passover is retold and a giant feast is served.

Although many kosher restaurants close during Passover, many restaurants offer more secular interpretations of Passover favorites. Meals featuring slow-cooked brisket, gefilte fish, and cakes made with matzoh meal can be enjoyed by all. Here are some restaurants offering Passover dinners this week. Reservations are suggested, and gratuities are generally not included.

Blue Collar's Passover Corben
Blue Collar is making a special edition of its Corben sandwich by resting the tender brisket meat on matzo instead of the usual Portuguese muffin. Potato latkes and au jus are served alongside ($19).

BLT Steak's Passover Blackboard Dinner Menu
If you're on the beach and dying for a little matzoh ball soup, head to BLT at the Betsy for chef Daniel Ganem's Passover blackboard specials, served every evening from April 14 through 22.

We bet your bubbe didn't make her matzoh ball soup with black truffles ($12) or her gefilte fish with English pea velouté ($35). Other specials include a prime dry-aged brisket with dried fruit compote and horseradish sauce ($35), kugel gratin ($11), and deviled hen eggs ($12). For dessert, there's flourless chocolate cake with Frangelico ice cream ($11) or passionfruit soufflé with chocolate-dipped macaroons ($11).

The menu is also available as a three-course dinner from $60.
