As the spring months progress, Nonnina is launching two brand new ways for Chicagoans to indulge in their daily handmade, freshly cut, pasta and sandwiches from the comfort of their own home with Nonnina Fresh Pasta Kits & RiverWalk To-Go packages. Over the course of the past year we’ve seen restaurants and bars alike get creative in how they offer their signature dishes and drinks to patrons amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. And despite the loosened restrictions and restoration of indoor and outdoor dining, some restaurants found immense value in take-home kits even after this era of quarantined cooking.
Option 1: Nonnina Fresh Pasta Kits
For Nonnina’s Fresh Pasta Kits customers can choose from Pappardelle, Squid Ink Linguini, Spaghetti, Spinach Fettuccine, Rigatoni, or Bucatini shaped pasta. For the sauces, Nonnina is offering pints or quarts of Marinara, Pomodoro, Vodka Sauce, Amatriciana, Bolognese for $8.00 or $12.00. Pair together the squid ink linguini with some pomodoro sauce and have yourself a night for the ages.
Option 2: RiverWalk To-Go Package
If you’re looking for a daytime picnic vibe to compliment the weather then Nonnina is offering their RiverWalk package. In total, customers can treat themselves to a large salad, 12-inch sub, and a bottle of wine for $35. Take your meal and walk all of 35 steps across the Clark St. bridge and enjoy your meal on the riverwalk steps between La Salle and Clark. That sure makes going back into the office worth it.
Remember, simply because COVID is loosening its’ stranglehold on our way of life does not mean that local small business of all kinds are still feeling the harsh ramifications the pandemic had on operations. Nonnina’s Fresh Pasta Kits and RiverWalk To-Go Package are two great ways you can still support these types of business get back on track. You don’t need to always go out to support. Chicagoans can still cook up the perfect date night or day time meal and be world-class chefs in their own kitchen. Not to mention, these at-home date experiences make fantastic gifts to boot!
Chef Boudouvas is encouraging diners to purchase pasta kits and make them “their own creation” by playing around with different ingredients and recipe ideas. Who said ordering from a restaurant had to be stuffy and systematic in nature. No, not with Nonnina!
