Break the Fast with Blue Collar's Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur Baskets

Memories of your grandma slaving away in the kitchen during the Jewish High Holy Days are a thing of the past thanks to mom-and-pop eatery Blue Collar.

Break-fast baskets are now available to order for Rosh Hashanah this weekend, and Yom Kippur the following week. But owner and chef Danny Serfer made similar baskets long before he created the MiMo District eatery. 

"When I was just a cook or a sous chef, a lot of my friends would get briskets or latkes from me during the holidays," he said. "And I was talking to someone at [Blue Collar] about it, and thought why not try it here?"

Serfer's family often outsourced food for the holidays, so now he wants to see if others will too. 

"You can get your whole Jewish holiday dinner from us and not have to worry about it," he said. "And traditionally break-fast is with more bagels and fish, but with so few bagels places few and far between, we thought we could do it with brisket. And you can make our own Corben sandwiches at home with it too."

Each basket includes some of their signature dishes like braised brisket, roasted potatoes, latkes, apple sauce, and their beloved veggie sides - sautéed kale, caramelized brussel sprouts, and curried cauliflower purée. And for dessert, let the family indulge in valrhona chocolate cake, Key Lime pie and butterscotch heath bar bread pudding.

Baskets are priced at $210 for a group of six, or $420 for 12. Orders can be made through September 21 via email at [email protected] or by calling 305-756-0366. Be sure to order at least 48 hours in advance, as about two-days are needed until pick-up. 

Stay tuned as Serfer plans to offer more holiday-style baskets in the future.
