Celebrate 12 Days of Valentine’s at Duke’s; One Day is Just Not Enough

SEATTLE, WA (Jan. 24, 2019) — Duke’s Seafood & Chowder, serving sustainable seafood for more than four decades, today announces its 12 Days of Valentines with dinner and wine specials available from Feb. 7th – 18th.  Recognizing the challenge and pressure typically associated with getting a reservation on Feb. 14th, Duke Moscrip, founder of Duke’s Seafood & Chowder, created the 12-day menu to allow everyone a chance to celebrate and, according to Moscrip, have no excuse not to.

“Getting a reservation at a fine dining restaurant on Valentine’s Day is a tough hurdle,” Moscrip says. “So why not give couples more options? I created the 12 Days of Valentines at Duke’s so every couple that wants to celebrate in style has a chance to do that without worrying about making it happen on only one night. Plus, if there is one event to extend beyond one day, its Valentine’s Day; the day to celebrate relationships. Duke’s exclusive menu includes specials on its wide variety of Pacific Northwest wines as well as its artfully crafted cocktails. The featured cocktail, Blood Orange Margarita, handcrafted with Milagro 100% Agave Reposado tequila, Solerno Blood Orange liqueur, fresh lime and orange, homemade sour, red sugar and salted rim, on the rocks.

Duke’s dinner menu is as saucy and spicy as its flavors. According to Moscrip, “We loaded up our special 12 Days of Valentines menu with fun, love-oriented names in the style of the classic Valentine’s heart candies, just to add a special twist. I love creating an experience and this menu is so strong, I’m swooning about it myself.”
