Trisha Pérez Kennealy’s cozy inn in Lexington typically offers hamantaschen for Purim; she plans the same—as well as a Passover menu—this season. Last year, she served the treats during high tea on Saturday, brunch on Sunday and at the Inn’s bar on Monday and Tuesday. Bonus: The Inn has the most welcoming wraparound porch in the area for early spring relaxing, and luxe rooms if you decide to turn your meal into a getaway.
