Star & Shamrock's "Passover & Easter Lamb-a-palooza" Weekend

Let My People the Star and Shamrock’s
“Passover Meets Easter Lamb-a-palooza”

Easter is linked to Jewish Passover by more than just yearly calendar proximity. In many languages, the words for "Easter" and "Passover" are identical, with both symbolically celebrating spring, hope, and rebirth, regardless of religion. In their long-continued tradition of bringing together people, cultures and religions, Star and Shamrock (1341 H St) plans to again make this connection with their first-ever “Lamb-a-palooza” Easter Meets Passover holiday weekend celebration.

The festivities begin Friday, April 3 and run through Sunday, April 5, with non-traditional Passover Seder dinners, holiday-inspired brunches, and specialty cocktails. Friday and Saturday night’s multicultural Seder Plate-mirroring dinner menu features classic Matzo Ball Soup, a garden-fresh Romaine & Green Onion Salad with Spicy Horseradish Dressing, savory Herb-Roasted Lamb Chops served with Sauteed Swiss Chard & Shallots, Roasted Rosemary Potatoes, a Pickled Egg, Fruit & Honey Haroset and--with a final nod to the no-flour Passover tradition, freshly baked house-made Matzo Bread. Saturday and Sunday morning’s Brunch menu continues to play on both holidays, featuring Jewish & Irish hybrid dishes such as Beef Salami & Eggs, House-Smoked Salmon with Eggs, Tomatoes & Onion, Lamb Sausage & Egg Irish Breakfast, a “Sunny Side Up” Lamb Burger, Cream Cheese Omelets and Matzo Brei. And to wash it all down Star and Shamrock Bar Manager, Gene Barnett, will be unveiling his Irish whiskey and Manischewitz “Guilt Chaser” craft cocktail.
