5 Spots With Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur Dining Specials in Greater Phoenix

Happy almost-Jewish New Year. Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown this Friday, September 18. It’s often celebrated with dishes like apples and honey, which usher in sweetness for the months ahead. Yom Kippur begins Sunday, September 27, followed by a day of fasting from sundown to sundown — culminating in a “break fast” meal of lighter fare like bagels and salads.

For those who don’t feel like cooking for any of this, here are five Valley restaurants and shops offering dining deals and meal packages for both holidays.

Chompie’s

Multiple Locations

For Rosh Hashana, Chompie’s is offering a traditional meal for $279 and a basic dinner for $235; both will serve eight people. Dishes include chopped liver, gefilte fish, chicken matzah ball soup, roasted chicken, brisket, and potato pancakes. Among the Yom Kippur meal options are a $20.99 a person lox platter, which comes with assorted bagels, cream cheese, and a vegetable and olive platter. Then there’s the salad sampler (with tuna and egg salad) for $11.99 a person, a medium or large fruit salad platter for $49.99 and $69.99, and a dessert platter for $55.99. A la carte options can be added to any feast. Pre-ordering is available now. There’s curbside pickup for to-go orders, and delivery for orders more than $200.
