Spring is just around the corner (note to the weather gods: enough with the snow, already!) which calls for a celebration—preferably one that involves a copious amount of Cadbury Mini Eggs. This year, leave the cooking to these restaurants, bakeries and markets instead, so you can focus on what’s important (ahem, stuffing your face with said chocolate eggs). Here, our list of the best places to order Passover and Easter dinner takeout in NYC. (Psst: Passover begins on Saturday, March 27 this year and Easter is on Sunday, April 4.)
