Get Cooking: Bellevue Restaurants at Home
There’s something delicious about a homecooked meal, yet if you’re like us, you’re probably missing a good dinner out right about now. With the stay-at-home order still in place, it’ll be a bit longer before we can rush down to our favorite Downtown spots, but many restaurants have responded in tow with the perfect combination: your favorite restaurant dishes prepared and packaged for you to cook at home. Here’s a roundup of our latest favorites.
Ascend Prime Steak and Sushi’s “At-Home” Mealkits
Using top-of-the-line ingredients and gourmet (yet totally doable) techniques, Ascend At Home kits offer any adventurous cook the opportunity to whip up a complete dinner. Each kit serves a minimum of two people, and you can round out your meal with options for wine, additional sides and desserts. The offerings change frequently, meaning you’ll be hard-pressed not to do it again.
Family Meals for Four from Seastar Bellevue
Featuring a rotating selection of delicious offerings, Seastar’s Family Meals just need a reheat (or a bit of light cooking) and boom; you have a fresh dinner ready. Each family meal comes with everything that is needed and includes a starter course (soup or salad), an entrée and a dessert. And of course, chef-provided instructions on how to prepare each in your home. Available for pickup only on Wednesdays and Saturdays, these kits have been known to sell out. The best part? They’re a deal at only $60!
Cocktail Kits from Central Bar and Restaurant
Treat yourself to a Cadillac margarita or a perfect Martini – that you make yourself! Whether you're a pro or a beginner, you can play mixologist with drink options ranging from Mojitos to Manhattans. Each cocktail kit includes everything you’ll need but the shaker, including full-sized liquor bottles, accoutrements and mixers. Whatever your coktail of choice is, browse their takeout menu for details of each kit.
Whether you try one or try all three, enjoy a bit of Downtown dining at home.There are of course plenty of amazing options for takeout and delivery, but if you’re feeling like a little kitchen action, these at-home kits are the perfect way to balance the comfort of something you make at home with the excitement of dining out. Bon appetit!
