Restaurants Offering Rosh Hashanah Specials

Rosh Hashanah means “head of the year,” in Hebrew. The holiday marks the Jewish New Year and is one of the holiest days in Judaism. After hearing the blowing of the shofar and attending services, we can’t think of any better way to usher in the new year than by enjoying great food! Here are five restaurants offering takeout or serving special dishes for Rosh Hashanah.
