We’re rapidly approaching Valentine’s Day, the biggest “dinner in a fancy restaurant” night of the year. Unfortunately, with area eateries still dealing with capacity restrictions—or being closed altogether—planning a night out this Valentine’s Day will be a challenge. Thankfully, many of our favorite restaurants have pivoted to offering to-go meals, some even giving you the option to finish cooking at home. We’ve teamed up with our friends at RPM Seafood to offer the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for the foodies out there who still want to have a memorable night. It’s part dinner and part interactive experience.
The RPM Seafood x Abt Valentine’s Day package is a take-home kit that includes everything you need to cook a decadent date-night dinner in the comfort of your own home. Inside the cold-packed box, you’ll find all of the ingredients needed for a multi-course Valentine’s Day dinner that includes:
- Tuna Provencal (Tuna Crudo, with Nicoise Olives, Lemon, and Espelette Pepper)
- House Baked Focaccia Bread with Goat Cheese and Lemon Pomodoro
- Whole Roasted Maine Lobster with Drawn Butter, Lemon, and Twice-Baked Potatoes
- Molten Chocolate Cake and Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries
But the food is only half of the experience. Included with the package is a link to a how-to video from RPM Seafood’s chef team, with detailed instructions on how to prepare and plate your meal. You and your Valentine’s Day date can cook along with chefs from one of Chicago’s most popular new restaurants.
RPM knows that many of their fans would make the drive downtown for a full night experience, but might not do so just to pick up food. That’s where we come in. Each day that the dinner is offered, we’ll be picking up the packages from RPM Seafood and bringing them back to Abt to make it easier for suburban fans to get their meals. Simply come to Abt, head to the Bluestar kitchen in the rear of the atrium, and grab your meal package. This week, we’ll also be launching a contest that will give you a chance to win an RPM x Abt Valentine’s Day dinner package—stay tuned to the Abt Instagram feed for more info!
