Fans of Duke’s Seafood can now bring its menu to their own kitchen with pre-prepped, take-home meal kits.
If you can wield an oven mitt, you can easily serve up a Duke’s-sanctioned gourmet dinner — their kits are designed for quick assembly on a sheet pan. Cook time typically lasts between 10 and 15 minutes.
Duke’s rotates meal-kit dishes weekly. The restaurant sticks to fan favorites, like Dungeness Crab “Un”cakes (mostly crab, not so much cake), stuffed prawns, seafood tacos, or (our favorite) “Appetizers for Dinner.” That option includes a wide variety of gourmet snacks including filet mignon bites and crab deviled eggs with avocado toast.
The kits include salad, a side, bread, and a dessert. Order a kit online on Wednesdays by 5 p.m. and pick it up at Duke’s Tacoma waterfront location on Thursdays after 3 p.m. While you’re at it, ask for an “add-on” portion of its award-winning lobster or clam chowder to keep in your freezer for a quick weeknight meal.
Half the proceeds from meal-kit sales goes to charities like Unravel Pediatric Cancer, a foundation supporting the development of more effective, less toxic treatments for children with cancer.
If you want to skip any interaction with your own kitchen appliances, Duke’s also offers take-out and curbside delivery of any dishes on its menu. Duke’s is now allowed seating up to 25 percent indoors, and there are also tent and deck outdoor options. More indoor seating will be available when counties move into the next phase.
If that’s not enough incentive to try the food, Duke’s also offers a frequent diner program that rewards you every time you order. Sign up for its email club and you’ll receive a free meal for joining and one on your birthday, too.
