Payard's chocolate-covered matzah is a real treat.

Passover desserts don’t have great reputation. They can often be dry and tasteless. But Payard comes to the rescue.

The restaurant is offering several Passover desserts (though, note, none are certified kosher for Passover).

The selection includes petit fours made of almond flour and almond paste, candied orange peel, dried fruit and nuts (for $26 per pound), hand-sculpted dark chocolates (certified kosher by the OK, $35) and our personal favorite — double dipped matzah ($5 per piece). Trust us, though pricey, the Matzah dipped in caramel and dark chocolate and coated with sliced almonds and fleur de sel is enough to convince anyone to convert.
