Introducing the Clover Passover Box!

Passover is just around the corner! We’re so excited to be collaborating with our dear friend Rabbi Barry Dolinger of Congregation Beth Sholom to create a deep, rich, springtime spread of dishes that are great for one big seder or many smaller meals throughout a week. 

Bitter endive dressed with honey. Bright orange romesco. Deep red borscht. Fluffy potatoes—Chris is even making vegetarian chopped liver inspired by a survey we did of your favorite Passover food memories. A nod to the past, a celebration of tradition, a hopeful look to the future. 

And at the center of it all: matzo on a mission, baked the old way at Mitzvah Matzos using Maine Grains flour, with proceeds going to fight modern slavery (in the form of human trafficking).

This softer, more traditional matzo is finding its way into a luscious mushroom pâté enriched with Rhode Island Mushrooms and Grafton cheddar, perfect covered in lots of gravy…and since we’re in New England, there’s even Maple Matzo Fluffernutters! 

Every item in this meal box, from your first sip of soup to your last bite of flourless chocolate cake, is Kosher for Passover — we want to thank Barry for helping Chris and our kitchen team do the hard work to get there with no added cost to you all!

All items are heat-and-eat or require minimal prep (5-10 minutes) to get on the table. 

Attention! Extremely limited slots!
Order now to secure your spot for pickup or delivery on March 25 or 26. 
Don’t forget to add extra matzo and Kosher wine to complete your order.

What’s inside the Passover Box?

On sale now. Available 3/25 and 3/26. Free delivery within 30 mile radius of Cambridge!


Matzo Fluffernutter Kit

  • 1 container almond butter
  • 1 container Clem’s maple fluff
  • 2 slices of soft wheat Mitzvah Matzo (the matzo company that Barry and his wife Naomi run in RI). Though this soft style may seem non-traditional, it in fact more accurately represents how Jews celebrated Passover for most of Jewish history. This is not the cracker-like matzo you might be used to. As Barry says, “it’s not your bubbie’s matzo—it’s your bubbie’s bubbie’s matzo.” Included in your box: a special note to Clover customers from Barry about the history of soft matzo.
  • Make maple matzo fluffernutters by heating the matzo and adding nut butter and maple fluff!
  • (Note – an earlier version of this menu had peanut butter listed, which we have since changed to almond butter)

Appetizers for your seder table

  • 1 container romesco dip
  • 1 container chopped liver (meatless of course, Chris is working his usual magic again)
  • 1 pot chopped hardboiled eggs (yummy with chopped liver)
  • 1 container raw veggies for dipping
  • Anticipate needing more matzo to make soup or to have during your seder? We’re offering packs of Mitzvah Matzo as a supplemental item—be sure to add to your order before you check out.


Brussels sprout casserole

  • Our most popular holiday item is back! You don’t want to miss this one.
  • 1 casserole tray
  • Ready to eat – just heat it up!

Potato-cheddar soup

  • 1 pint of creamy soup made with East coast potatoes and Grafton cheddar (did you know Rabbi Barry milked cows and supervised a special Kosher run of this cheese up in VT?)
  • Ready to eat – just heat it up!

Bitter endive, provolone, hazelnut, cherry salad

  • 1 container of salad
  • 1 bottle orange-honey-white-wine vinaigrette
  • Just dress the salad and serve it up!


Mushroom matzo pâté

  • 1 loaf of pâté made with Rhode Island Mushrooms, Mitzvah Matzo, Grafton Cheddar and lots of love
  • Ready to eat – just heat it up! Goes great with lots of gravy.

  • Ready to eat – just heat it up!

Kale and Winter Moon Roots Farm salad

  • 1 container salad
  • 1 bottle turmeric dressing
  • Just dress the salad and serve it up!

(Note: all 3 menus are included with every box! No need to pick and choose – this is just our suggested method of breaking up the dishes into separate meals if you are eating the box over the course of a week instead of eating it all together as one big feast)


  • Flourless chocolate cake (1 tray)
  • Passover Apple Mousse (apple compote with orange-cinnamon white chocolate mousse – 2 jars)

(Note: portions described here are for the 2-person box. Menu scales proportionally for our 4, 6, 8, and 10-person boxes)

Need more matzo? How about Kosher wine for your seder? We’ve got the good stuff, both red and white : )

PS. Do you have friends in Rhode Island who you think might like a Passover Box? We are doing a special pickup in Providence on March 25 – orders for that can be placed here!

PPS. Here is a note from R Dolinger, hope this helps address some Passover-related questions!

I’m writing to share some news: we’ve decided to permanently close CloverROW, our outpost in the Assembly Row neighborhood of Somerville. The closure of this restaurant is part of the whole company’s focus on reaching financial sustainability and positioning us for future growth. These decisions are really hard, but they’re necessary steps for us to simplify Clover. And, happily, all the amazing staff at CloverROW, including the manager Joe, will be able to move into other Clover restaurants. The math is straightforward…

These sweet potato latkes date back to early days on the Clover food truck. They’re so yummy and the sweet potatoes lend them such a fun golden color. They’re probably the most popular item in our Hanukkah Meal Box, which you can get delivered on December 7th. Inside the box you’ll find:

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. We will be closed Thursday 11/23 at all locations. For our kitchen team, it will be a good chance to rest after prepping a ton of Brussels casseroles for our Thanksgiving Box : ) As for the days surrounding Thanksgiving, we’ll be open normal hours, except for CloverFIN (Financial District) and CloverHSC (Harvard Science Center) which will be closed tomorrow and Friday. CloverHSQ (Harvard Square) will be closing early (at 8pm) tomorrow.

I’m not a big believer in multitasking (which, in my experience, is doing a bunch of things simultaneously and badly.) But there’s a lot going on at Clover right now, so I had to break my No Multitasking Rule on Wednesday. I asked Michele and Greg on our Finance team if they’d mind if I took myself off video during a meeting to review Accounts Payable. “I have to draw a cartoon Delicata Squash,” I explained, reasonably.

Some of you have been asking for a sides-only box – and it’s true, sides are the best part, aren’t they? We’re making a limited number of boxes with mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and King Brussels’ Casserole. Each Sides Box serves 6-8 people and can be delivered to your door for 11/21 or 11/22.

The moment you’ve waited for is here. Western Mass Brussels sprouts are back in the restaurants, which means the King himself has landed! What’s on this glorious sandwich and why is it the King of all seasonal sandwiches? A dijon-mayo spread, smoked Grafton cheddar, fried Brussels tossed with za’atar (a Middle Eastern spice blend), pickled red cabbage, and toasted hazelnuts.

On Friday we had a company meeting with all our leadership to talk about a decision we’ve made about the future of Clover. We are all focused on putting Clover on solid financial footing so we can continue to make the food you love for many years to come. COVID changed everything for restaurants like us. The way we eat, drink, work, and get together has shifted substantially and, while Clover has seen a steady recovery in sales…

Julia here. Today, October 29, is Clover’s birthday! 15 years of perfect pita, crispy chickpea fritters, countless sandwiches that cycle with the seasons, and of course the occasional birthday cupcake. How lucky are we? Although I’ve been working at Clover for a year and a half, this was my first week as CEO. I’m excited and honored to be stepping into this role. I’ve been a Clover enthusiast for a long time – since my first taste of a Blue Oyster Mushroom sandwich as a grad student in 2013. As COO and now as CEO…

If you stop by tomorrow (Friday 10/27) around 11am, you might be treated to a bit of Clover history in the form of a carrot cupcake with buttercream frosting. One per paying customer, while they last! And they may not last long : )

A bunch of you have been asking, and yes, we are doing a Thanksgiving Box menu again this year, with all the favorites from years past – Hubbard Squash glazed with maple-Sriracha butter, mashed potatoes, gravy, Ayr’s dad’s walnut-mushroom patè, stuffing – there’s even a limited run of Petsi pies. Free delivery to your door if you’re within 30 miles of us. Click here to reserve yours.

I’ve recently asked somebody who believes in Clover as much as I do to step into the CEO role. Julia Wrin Piper has been Clover’s COO for the past 18 months and will take over running the company day-to-day. I’ll be shifting my efforts to provide support for Julia and the team, work on growth opportunities, and pursue partnerships that will amplify Clover’s mission. I’ll remain a member of the Board of Directors and active as an advisor and mentor. Clover is facing a potent mix of opportunity and challenge right now and I know Julia is exactly the right person to lead the team through these twists and turns.

On 10/29 Clover will turn 15 years old. It’s been 15 years since we first pulled up a tiny white food truck to the MIT campus in hopes of testing a menu that could make a dent in global warming. Since then we’ve supported so many local farmers; had tons of adventures on board trucks and restaurants; and met tons of wonderful customers. And most of all we’ve made food. Lots and lots of food. In honor of our 15th birthday, we sent out a survey asking you about your favorite LONG-LOST MENU ITEMS. We’ve picked the top results and we’re going to bring them back for one day only – in the form of a Birthday Meal Box!
