Breaking Passover

I was assigned to write a piece about breaking Passover. In case you don’t know, “leavened” products (most bread, pasta, and pastries) are prohibited during the holiday. As someone who eats an egg and cheese bagel for breakfast, cereal in between meals, and is constantly rewarding herself with cinnamon rolls (I deserve it for writing the header on my paper, don’t you think?), abiding by the limits of Passover was something I could not do. Even for the sake of journalism. Sorry, FM. To make up for it, I scoped out some of the best places to grab a meal once Passover is over.
