McAlister’s Deli Saves Valentine’s Day by Transforming into a “Steakhouse” for Couples who Dropped the Ball on Dinner Plans.
The One-Day Pop-up Steakhouse will Open Reservations on Valentine’s Day Morning, Giving 80 Couples the Chance to Dine on McAlister’s New Steak Menu
February 14, 2022
ATLANTA, Feb. 14, 2022 – According to a recent survey by McAlister’s Deli, only 10% of Americans who plan to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year have made restaurant / bar reservations in the weeks leading up to the holiday1. As the experts in hospitality, McAlister’s Deli is swooping in to help out those who haven’t had the time to make Valentine’s Day plans with the introduction of McAlister’s “Steakhouse” - an exclusive dining experience, inclusive of a complimentary dinner service, live music at select locations, and elevated decor.
Guests who dine at McAlister’s “Steakhouse” will be served a three course meal inclusive of the new, limited-time, premium hand-cut and made-to-order sirloin steak menu: Steak & Gorgonzola Salad, Steak & White Cheddar Sandwich, Loaded Steak Spud, and Colossal Carrot Cake. Starting course is a side salad or cup of soup, followed by guest’s choice of a full size salad, sandwich, or spud, and ending with McAlister’s Colossal Carrot Cake.
“With the late timing of the Big Game and all of the festivities that accompany it, it’s no wonder that Valentine’s Day planning is slipping through the cracks this year,” said Mike Freeman, Chief Brand Officer of McAlister's Deli. “We found from our survey that two-thirds (65%) of Americans in relationships say they haven’t done anything to prepare or don’t plan to do anything for Valentine’s Day at all. So, we decided to do what we do best: provide a premium experience with genuine hospitality for our guests in their time of need.”
