For the last two months, One Off Hospitality Group (avec, The Publican, Big Star, The Violet Hour, etc.) has been delivering beloved Chicago-made dishes to doorsteps across the country through One Off At Home, its nationwide delivery service.
Now, the nine-time James Beard Award-winning restaurant group has another surprise to delight fans and fine-dining lovers nationwide: the revival of Blackbird through its iconic desserts. The 22-year-old Randolph Street mainstay closed its doors this past summer, but still lives on through memories from so many moments celebrated there over the years—as well as its recipes.
Executive Chef/Partner Paul Kahan and the One Off Hospitality pastry team are offering three curated options reviving classic Blackbird sweets, available exclusively for Valentine’s Day for shipping nationwide through One Off at Home. Over the years, Blackbird was the recipient of numerous pastry awards for its complex, delicate and iconic flavors and the care given to the evolving dessert menu, becoming known for that last course.
Inspired by decadent desserts formerly featured at Blackbird, guests can choose from a rich sampling of truffles and bonbons that are perfect for a meaningful, one-of-a-kind gift, and that true love — and hospitality — never dies. Offerings include:
Blackbird Truffle Box — Six Hazelnut Truffles and Six Spiced Caramel Truffles
Blackbird Bonbon Box — Four of each: Strawberry Ganache, Passionfruit Caramel and Banana Rum Ganache
Blackbird Assorted Chocolate Box — Two of each: Blackbird Bonbons, Blackbird Truffles, Crunch Bars, Pate de Fruit, Nougat and Mint Meltaways
A limited quantity of each are available and must be placed by February 7th online. Free two-day shipping will take place on February 10.
Guests can use the code “VALENTINES10” for 10% off Valentine’s Day orders (including the Blackbird desserts) within the holiday’s category placed before February 3.
Additional Valentine’s Day offers from One Off at Home include dinner for two with classics from avec: their famous chorizo-stuffed Medjool dates, deluxe focaccia, salad, paella with spanish bomba rice, confit chicken, shrimp, marinated artichokes and tangerine aioli and a paella pan to keep! Order avec’s dinner by February 9 at 10 am CT. 2-day shipping will take place on February 10th. Finally, Publican Quality Bread’s triple chocolate panettone is available to send a sweet treat to a loved one, as well as a Sugar Cookie Kit and a Dozen Sprinkle Cookies.
Each One Off At Home kit includes free shipping across the US (excluding Hawaii and Alaska) and is hand-packed within insulated liners and ice packs to ensure all items arrive fresh and cool.
