Two Options for Passover Seder in the Suburbs

Two suburban hot-spots are exciting additions to our Passover favorites list.

Trax Restaurant & Café is a little gem of history located in Ambler, PA. Trax is a newly-renovated BYOB located in the town’s old train station. The days of rail-side dining and cocktail service may be over, but Trax Café is anything but antiquated.

This Passover season, Chef Waxman is offering a three-course prix-fixe menu for only $30. Start with fresh matzo ball soup, choose between wagyu beef brisket and tender chicken breast, and finish with chocolate mousse or crème brulee—simple yet classic. Don’t forget to bring your own!

Also priced at $30, Cantina Feliz is serving a four-course Passover dinner with a twist. Located in Fort Washington, PA, this contemporary Mexican restaurant manages to be both innovative and classic at the same time—no easy feat. Chef Tim Spinner wanted to spice things up at Feliz this season.

“This is definitely NOT your Grandma’s typical Passover meal, unless she paired her brisket with mango salsa and added red chiles to her matzo ball soup. Our Passover Feliz menu brings a little fun into what can become a monotonous holiday food-wise,” he said.

In addition to the brisket and matzo ball soup, get ready for a salmon tostada course, dressed with zesty orange habanero vinaigrette. And the finisher is a real delight—key lime cheese cake. While the menu is not kosher, it does meet most Passover requirements.

So whether you’re looking for a classic meal, or a new take on old favorites, the suburbs seem like the place to be this week.
