Passover and Easter boxes are back.

Each year, early spring is a busy time at the Clover kitchen because we have 2 of our tastiest boxes, usually back-to-back. For the Passover box, a lot of care goes into the kashering of the kitchen, with Rabbi Dolinger coming in to ensure the box is totally Kosher for Passover via Lighthouse Kosher.

And of course we fill them with the best produce we can find—including sweet spring-dug parsnips with a ham-inspired glaze in the Easter box.

Oh! And this year, due to popular request, we’ve added a new Seder Plate add-on so Passover celebrants can plan your whole feast without any need for a grocery run. The charoset is a riff on Chef Phil’s dad’s version!

Check out the menu highlights below and click through to place your order. For Passover, we have 2 distribution dates: Tuesday, April 4 and Wednesday, April 5. For Easter, we’ve got a single distribution on Saturday April 8. Remember: Your orders are due by 5PM 2 days before the date it arrives on your doorstep—so grab what you want by 5PM on April 2, April 3, and April 6, respectively.


– Almond butter
– Clementine’s maple fluff, made with VT maple syrup
– Mitzvah Matzos
– A note from Rabbi B about the history of matzo
– A kid favorite!
Make maple matzo fluffernutters by heating the matzo and adding nut butter and maple fluff.
– Romesco dip (in the running for most popular spread at Clover!)
– Chopped liver (meatless of course, Chris is working his usual magic again, inspired by a customer survey about Passover food memories)
– Chopped hardboiled eggs (yummy with chopped liver)
– Raw farm veggies for dipping (you’ll cut them yourself according to our instructions )
– Our most popular holiday item is back! You don’t want to miss this one
– Rich brussels-cheddar casserole
– Ready to eat – just heat it up
– 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
– Salad made with bitter endive, provolone, hazelnut, and dried cherries
-Orange-honey-white-wine vinaigrette
– Just dress the salad and serve it up
– 1 loaf of pâté made with Rhode Island Mushrooms, Matzo, Grafton Cheddar, and lots of love
– Ready to eat – just heat it up. Goes great with lots of onion gravy.
– 1 pint of soup made with Winter Moon Roots’ sweet red beets and spring-dug parsnips (the first sign of spring in New England!)
– Ready to eat – just heat it up
– Mashed potatoes with Savoy cabbage and kale
– Caramelized onion gravy
– Ready to eat – just heat it up
– 1 container scratch-made butternut squash kugel (no noodles)
– Ready to eat – just heat it up
– 1 pint of creamy tomato soup – a favorite at our restaurants!
– Ready to eat – just heat it up
– Dairy free
– Salad with “not-too-bitter” greens
– Turmeric buttermilk dressing
– Just dress the salad and serve it up
– Flourless chocolate cake
– Passover Apple Mousse (apple compote with orange-cinnamon white chocolate mousse)



You’ll get a loaf of sourdough bread, light and airy and perfect for cutting into “soldiers;” soft-boiled eggs; pesto made with late winter greens and sunflower seeds; Chris’s magic garlic and herb compound butter; and roasted tomatoes. Great for a post egg hunt breakfast – or break it up and use it for breakfasts all week long.


I can’t tell you how much fun it is to make this Dutch Baby. Think of it as a giant popover, fluffy, eggy, tender, and buttery. We’ll give you already-mixed batter; you’ll sizzle butter in a skillet, then pour the batter and watch it PUFF UP! We’ll give you pecorino-and-herb cream sauce and Rhode Island mushrooms to spoon into the “crater.” If you’re freaked out by the name, ease your mind with this article from our friends at ATK.

When we were crafting this box back in 2021, I asked Chris if he could riff on ham, because that’s such a classic part of Easter Sunday. He came back with these beautiful “ham-glazed” parsnips. You’ll get already-roasted parsnips (spring-dug = extra sweet). You’ll heat them, then drizzle Chris’s “ham glaze” over the top and carve them at the table.

Plus a spring greens frittata, confit radishes and carrots, warm Italian lentils, French onion soup with cheesy croutons, farro salad, and tons of desserts!

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:

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…

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.

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 : )

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!
