From April 10 through 18, the local Jewish community will celebrate the Israelites’ freedom from Egypt with Seder dinners and keeping kosher. Whether or not you count yourself among them, you can play along at these kashrut-keeping Meyerland restaurants.

Genesis Steakhouse & Wine Bar

The city’s sole upscale kosher eatery impresses with steak, duck and lamb, but fish is also a focus. There’s a wide range of shellfish-free sushi, as well as trendy tuna poke and snapper ceviche.

My Pita

The only restaurant in Houston completely devoted to Israeli cuisine, this spot even imports the country’s drinks and candy to pair with your meal. There’s schnitzel and shawarma, and should you feel like eggs, there’s shakshuka, too.

Saba’s Grill & Wok

The newest kosher restaurant in Houston, this sequel to Mediterranean-focused Saba’s Restaurant serves Mediterranean kebabs and wraps, as well as Chinese-American classics like dumplings and lo mein.
