Robata at Home
This new Japanese grill has launched finish-at-home meal boxes for lockdown, complete with yakitori, cocktails and a curated playlist.
The San Telmo crew's new Japanese grill restaurant Robata was open for less than a week before the latest lockdown shut its doors. Thankfully, you can now get a taste of Head Chef Stephen Clark's hotly anticipated new menu delivered to your house. The restaurant has launched a lockdown-friendly Robata at Home offering available for delivery this weekend.
For $75, the 'Ie De Robata' two-person meal box comes loaded with chirashi hand rolls, plenty of house-made condiments, and finish-at-home dishes like chicken thigh yakitori, yaki onigiri and leek kushiyaki skewers. There are step-by-step instructions to help you bring it all to life, plus a curated playlist to jam to while you cook. Meanwhile, the $110 'Sequel' box features an even heartier lineup — think, fresh tuna and salmon sashimi, pork katsu teamed with cabbage and a red miso sauce, and fluffy yuzu marshmallow for dessert. Other goodies available to add onto your order include Asahi beers, bottles of sake and wine, and batched serves of the signature Sakura cocktail — a traditional blend of vodka, sake, sour cranberry and cherry blossom.
Only a limited number of boxes are up for grabs, so get in quick and order yours online before they're gone. Deliveries are happening this Friday, August 13–Sunday, August 15, from 9am–5pm. Order before 5pm for next-day drop-off.
