Last year the Tonys had the chutzpah to fall on Shavuot, so we comforted ourselves with a menu for a themed holiday meal. This year, all is right in the world again, and in anticipation of the Tony Awards this Sunday (you can read about which Jewish folks or works stand to win here), there are at least two different Broadway-themed Shabbat dinners happening (in Brooklyn, if you even had to ask).
And so, we would like to present you with a potential menu gleaned from these meals, in case you want to have one of your own tonight. We’ve limited it to dishes associated with nominated shows from this season, and hyperlinked to explanations of the references:
- Motzi with Charlie and the Challah Factory (OK, this is an exception to the rule, because the show got snubbed, Tony-wise.)
- Kiddush with Cabernet from Away
- Don’t have red wine? Then it’s The Great Kiddush of 2017
- “Quinoa’ll Be Found” Salad
- Hello, Colli-flower! side veggie
- Hello, Dairy! cheesy quiche (you can’t expect only one Bette Midler reference!)
- Orzo, A New Play by J.T. Rogers
- Great “Comets” of 1812 meatballs
- Dear Edamame Hansen
- After dinner hot refreshments with AnasTEAsia
- Indecent-ly Good Brownie Bites
Bon appétit, and break a leg.
