LAUNDERETTE’S PASSOVER SEDER TO-GO No one needs to tell you how good the food at (and, these days, from) Launderette is, right? It’s off the charts with flavor, really. So we’ll just mention this new portable holiday feast of theirs, available for pre-order now (for pick-up on March 27), because it’s packed full with enough to serve 4-6 people and features beet/horseradish deviled eggs, matzo ball soup, gefilte fish and chick liver paté, chicory salad, maror, braised lamb shank, tzimmes, and a variety of cookies and other treats.

Launderette,
