Celebrate Chanukah with Zingerman’s Roadhouse

Chanukah celebrates the miracle of the holy oil that burned for eight days. This year, the Roadhouse’s Chanukah menu celebrates the festival of this harvested light by centering on our favorite oil-cooked delicacies. 

This menu features some of our favorite ingredients to highlight, like pasture-raised short ribs; small-batch, bronze cut pasta from the Abruzzo region of Italy; and, of course, our beloved new harvest olive oil from Hudson Vineyards in California. We’re thoughtfully preparing everything you need to fill your Chanukah table with a bounty of delicious foods, from a sweet twist on classic latkes to start, to a selection of tempting entrées, all the way through to delicious desserts from Zingerman’s Bakehouse.


Available November 29th–December 6th.
