A Haggadah (the text read during the ritual meal which tells the story of the Israelites liberation from slavery in Egypt) and a Seder plate will be provided for each table.  For reservations, please call (212) 994-9555. Tickets are $45 per person, and $25 for children 12 and under. 

In celebration of Passover, Bill Telepan will serve a Seder-style dinner at his Upper West Side restaurant on Mon/March 25 & Tue/March 26.  Bill will offer his take on the traditional Seder meal with a four-course menu of flavorful dishes such as spring vegetable soup with matzo balls & dill oil and hanger steak and brisket. Pastry chef Larissa Raphael will end the meal with pineapple-lemon sorbet and flourless chocolate cake. Reservations open on Thu/Feb 28, and can be made, here  or (212) 580-4300.
