All of the meals are served family style: small portions are served for each dish, but you can ask for seconds of any or all. They will also be serving their regular menu and their regular kid's menu. For Kids partaking of the family feast, the menu is half price. When you make your reservation, indicate you are coming for the high holiday menus. TheRosh Hashanahfeast is a celebration of seasonal veggies to celebrate the new year. They are drawing from Mediterranean traditions and adding their Grotto touch: the range of Middle Eastern & Asian spices they use from the history of Italian cooking dating back to 4th century Rome. For Yom Kippur, they offer two different experiences. TheKol Nidremenu is hearty with an emphasis on lower salt and lighter preparations for those planning on fasting. Breaking the Fasthas become their favorite of the three menus. They start with a dairy meal made up of lots of dishes featuring local veggies & our range of artisan cheeses. You can select any or all of them to make your meal. If you want to add meats to your table, there are three meat dishes to choose from. If you choose to go the meat route, there are enough non-dairy dishes so you can construct a total non-dairy meal if you wish. (1914 9th Street NW; 202.686.2966; dinosgrotto.com)
