With Easter and Passover around the corner and social distancing/shelter-in-place mandates enacted, many families are wondering how they can ease these already stressful times by not worrying about going to a market in order to create a dinner of their own.

Here are restaurants that are offering Easter take-out/delivery options.

In alphabetical order…

Ammatolí Mediterranean Bites

285 E. Third St.; 562-435-0808

If you haven’t experienced Chef Dima Habibeh’s food, you are simply missing out. And now, you can experience the warmth of her culinary skills with either an Easter/Passover brunch or dinner.

Her family brunch consists of her shakshouka—something I’ve long touted—hummus with ground beef, foul (pronounced “fool,” where fava beans are mashed into a wonderful paste that is easily smeared on pita), five pieces of falafel, and babaganouj. It serves five people, comes with pita and pickles, and is $74.

Chef Dima is offering two dinners.

One consists of two whole rotisserie chickens with your choice of five sides for $54.

The other, a kebab feast, consists of six beef kebabs and grilled veggies, vermicelli rice, two sides and a large salad of your choice. You can substitute lamb for $3 or salmon for $5.
