Stay-In Steakhouse is the Most Inventive Pop-Up Restaurant Concept Ever
With most couples spending Valentine's Day at home this year, takeout dinners, virtual events, and a unique 'pop-up to go "Goodfellas" eatery' are getting all the love.
“Goodfellas” is one of my all-time favorite flicks, but never did I think anyone would turn it into a romantic night “in.” But the team at Kitchfix, a Chicago-based company rooted in nutritionist-approved meals and founded by chef Josh Katt, thought different.
The company, which has been around for eight years, had already perfected its delivery system, so it wasn’t a stretch to transform the kitchen into a steakhouse with a delivery-only policy. Then, for Valentine’s Day festivities, they decided to have a little fun by playing up the delicious food scenes in “Goodfellas.”
“The cool thing in that movie is when they’re eating with their entire family around the table, at home, enjoying a really good Italian meal,” says Katt during my chat with him on the LIVE! Culinary Series.
He offers a virtual tour of what to expect if you order the six-course meal, which comes with everything you need for an authentic “Goodfellas” experience (minus the movie!), including steak and lobster, “Sunday gravy,” baked ziti, a curated Spotify playlist of the movie’s soundtrack, themed Valentine’s card, themed refrigerator magnet, two candles and a branded matchbook, movie trivia, chocolate molten lava cake with strawberry coulis, and more.
They went all out! The Valentine’s Day package is available on Tock through Feb. 17.
I featured even more unique options for Valentine’s Day on WGN Morning News last week. From a virtual cooking class to globally focused takeout dinners, the segment included offerings by the likes of Parachute, El Che Steakhouse, and Lonesome Rose.
