“We invite you to Bouley Seder – a biodynamic Passover celebration of freedom and liberation at Bouley Botanical. Dr. Lauren Granite, a Jewish thought leader, will guide you through the traditional ceremony featuring a custom haggadah and a ritual feast created by Chef David Bouley.
The evening will begin at 6:30 with a 30 minute reception featuring passed canapés and klezmer music. Guests will then enjoy a complete seder with a multi-course menu accompanied by a kosher for Passover wine program curated by Beverage Director Adrien Falcon.”
Please note that the menu will be Kosher-for-Passover style but that our cuisine is not traditionally designated kosher for Passover.
