Going to Manhattan next weekend and looking for a restaurant that serves Sunday Gravy/macaroni like Your Iralian grandma would have made. Prefer to stay in Manhattan, and a place with a homey feel would be a plus.
Watch as Irma Zigas cooks with her grandson Caleb, preparing her own take on Passover brisket (here's her recipe). There's love, there's respect and teaching, there are disagreements over chopping onions—it's family. Caleb and Irma aren't kosher, and neither is this recipe, but Irma's been making this brisket since her anti-Vietnam, pro-women's-rights activist days, when she needed to bring the family together but couldn't spend hours in the kitchen.
