• Louisa Shafia, whose The New Persian Kitchen triumphed over Roberta’s Cookbook to win this year’s Piglet, Food52’s annual Tournament of Cookbooks, will serve up a Persian Passover seder at Nolita’s City Grit on April 16. There will be, among other things, “matzo balls” made from ground chicken and chickpea flour, an herb-and-lamb stew, and an abundance of rice (including tahdig, the crunchy pan-fried layer at the bottom of the pot). Ticket price ($85 for one, $155 for two) includes a copy of Shafia’s cookbook. [Grub Street]

• Another Nolita Passover option: Einat Admony and Missy Robbins, late of A Voce, will collaborate on an Italian-inspired seder at Admony’s Balaboosta on April 15. The four-course prix fixe dinner costs $125, and includes wine, live music, and dishes like mackerel in saor, eggplant and zucchini sticks with basil tahini, and braised short ribs with walnuts, anchovy, and dates. Dessert, a flourless chocolate cake with milk-chocolate halvah mousse, is courtesy of Chicago pastry chef and restaurateur Mindy Segal. Reserve at balaboostanyc.com. [Grub Street]
