The Best Easter and Passover Festivities Begin at Hudson Yards

Whichever holiday you observe, you’ll find what you need right here.

Passover and Easter will soon be upon us and, as always, the wide range of offerings at The Shops and Restaurants will help you make either celebration—or both!—especially joyous. You need look no further for …

Kosher Passover sweets…

Magnolia Bakery’s Matzo Crunch, dipped in chocolate and topped with buttercrunch, white chocolate drizzle and toffee pieces, is already a holiday classic. So are Magnolia’s crisp-on-the-outside-chewy-on-the-inside macaroons. Another display case of sweet delights awaits at William Greenberg: apple macaroon cake, chocolate raspberry tart, sponge cake and, of course, a special-for-the-holiday flourless version of those famous black and whites.

….and perfect Passover wines

The Hagaddah calls for celebrants to drink four glasses of wine and the team at Ana Wine & Spirits is featuring two special bottles. The Cave is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot made from grapes harvested in the Upper Galilee and aged for 24 months in French oak barrels. The Alexander Cabernet Franc is a dark purple, ruby colored silky wine with aromas of black cherry, plum, blueberry, vanilla and a slight floral quality.

A virtual egg hunt

Get a head start on the Easter fun with an updated take on an age-old tradition. Use your phone to hunt for 10 “eggs” hidden throughout Hudson Yards. Collect them all and unlock a 15% discount at Dylan’s Candy Bar. Join the search by downloading the MEMBIT app here, now through April 17th.

Jelly beans in all the flavors

And speaking of Dylan’s … the confectionary wonderland has everything the family Easter bunny needs for their successful morning delivery in ready-made baskets. For those interested in a choose-your-own-adventure Sunday, there’s caramel robin’s eggs, gummy chicks, nut-free chocolate bunnies, lollipop bouquets, gummy kebabs and, of course, traditional, natural and sugar-free jelly beans.

Chocolate for every basket

You don’t mess with perfection, which is why Li-Lac’s chocolate bunnies arise from 100-year-old molds. Also perfect: crosses, lambs and giant eggs (among many more options). For a European solution to Easter’s cocoa craze, look no further than Neuhaus, whose eggs, packaged in a bunny-shaped box, come in a rainbow of flavors including cookies, salted caramel and hazelnut praline. Feel like a splurge? The Belgian chocolatier’s beautiful limited-edition assortments, featuring honey-infused chocolates, sing spring.

A royal Easter brunch

Leave the cooking to Queensyard, and relax in front of plates of classic options, like chicken and waffles and salmon benedict, and holiday specials, like hot cross buns. Book your reservation here
