Passover at Domenica


  Between the pizzas, meat plates and pasta dishes for which Domenica (123 Baronne St., 504-648-6020; is known, chef Alon Shaya has been crafting special menus for major Jewish holidays.

  The latest example is for Passover, and it will be served March 25 through April 2. It's a four-course meal that includes matzo ball soup with duck and saffron, black grouper, lamb shoulder and strawberry cobbler with matzo streusel. The meal costs $55 per person.

  This is not a kosher meal, nor is Domenica anything like a kosher restaurant. But based on impressive earlier holiday dinners, it should deliver a meal loaded both with culinary nuance and cultural tradition.
