Top chefs team up to launch ‘Restaurant Kits’ – a new service offering nationwide delivery

A group of chefs has launched Restaurant Kits, a new meal kit platform with a growing roster of restaurants.

Unlike delivery services catering to separate restaurants, the service creates DIY ‘makeaways’ for them, and specialises in ‘experiences’ beyond simply warming up prepared food.

Mac & Wild’s Andy Waugh and Calum Mackinnon run Restaurant Kits, and Flank’s Tom Griffiths has been brought in as head of partnerships. He said there are a number of exciting new collaborations on the way, and existing kits are selling out quickly.

The group said menus change monthly, seasonally, and in response to specific dates (Valentine’s Day being one). This month includes butter chicken curry kit from Kricket, a vegan cauliflower shawarma kit from Berber & Q, and Griffiths’ Ribinator, which is a modern and inventive riff on the McDonald’s classic from the 1980s.

Here’s February’s line-up:

Tom Griffiths – The Ribinator

The Ribinator by Tom Griffiths – founder of Flank – is a perfect meal kit for nostalgia-lovers, available exclusively on Restaurant Kits. The Ribinator comprises a soft glazed sub filled with layers of BBQ pork, inspired by the 80s classic Mcrib, dressed with smoky ketchup, Korean glaze, crispy onions and sweet pickles.

Price: £25 (serves 2)
