Do you have a summer bucket list?
Looking for family fun? Be a H.O.S.T. (Host of Summery Things).
Are you working overtime? Is your schedule jam packed with PTA meetings, TOT Shabbats, dance classes, boy scout activities and religious school? Are you counting down the days to Passover with a pit in your stomach?
If you’ve been feeling overwhelmed with the upcoming holiday just days away, there’s nothing wrong with picking up the phone and placing a quick pickup order for your friends and family. I’ve reached out to a couple of local hotspots in town offering quite a spread for you and yours.
Celebrating 50 years and counting of food, friendship and fun, The Bagel Deli is one of Denver’s most long standing restaurants. This family owned and operated restaurant is definitely worth experiencing. According to Jared, they’re cooking up some deliciousness for Pesach by offering a pesadik menu for takeout and dine-in. They’re offering traditional homemade items, sides, main courses, grocery items and desserts. It’s important to know that all orders need to be placed by April 17th.

Rosenberg’s Bagels and Delicatessen is an authentic bagel store with locations in the Greater Denver Area of Colorado, specializing in the best New York City-style bagels outside of the Tri-State Region (that doesn’t really help us during the week of Passover but it’s good to keep in mind). The delicatessen also boasts house-cured and smoked fish and deli meats; authentic Jewish foods like matzo ball soup and potato latkes; an assortment of freshly baked breads and pastries.
I reached out to Rosenberg’s Bagels and Delicatessen’s public relations representative, Rachel Feinberg, who shared with me their mouth watering options for the upcoming holiday. From housemade gefilte fish to a jar of Bubbie’s horseradish, they’ve got you covered. It’s good to know that their Passover items are available at both of their locations, in Denver and Aurora.
You can pick up your Passover catering orders from either of the two locations; you’ll be asked to specify when you place the order. Interested customers should email email@example.com to order by 10am on Thursday 4/18, if you’d like to have it ready for the First Night Seder.
