Oct. 2 marks the beginning of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Many families will gather for celebratory meals this Sunday evening, but for those without family in town or who simply don't want to cook, a number of L.A. restaurants are offering Rosh Hashanah meals. Here are three great options. 

AR Cucina, Akasha Richmond's brand new Italian restaurant in Culver City, will be serving a special Rosh Hashanah meal, with Jewish/Italian dishes such as Tuscan chopped liver with anchovy, capers and olive oil challah. There will also be select bottles of wine offered for half price. All dishes are priced à la carte. 
9531 Culver Blvd., Culver City. (310) 558-8800, arcucina.com.
