RM SEAFOOD TO CELEBRATE ITS GREATEST MENU HITS IN HONOR OF 10TH ANNIVERSARY THIS FEBRUARY
Celebrate a decade of unforgettable culinary hits as Chef Rick Moonen honors the 10th anniversary of Rick Moonen’s rm seafood at The Shoppes at Mandalay Place with a special menu created for the occasion. This February, in addition to the regular menu, guests can indulge in 10 of Moonen’s most celebrated dishes that reflect the spirit of the restaurant, as well as the last 10 years of his culinary career, all month-long.
“I can’t believe that it’s already been 10 years since we first opened rm seafood here on the Las Vegas Strip,” shared Moonen. “It’s been an incredible experience to have served and held a role in this fantastic community that I have called home for a decade. I’m looking forward to celebrating the restaurant with the return of my favorite dishes, as well as seeing what the future holds for rm seafood.”
The 10 dishes selected for the menu will be available throughout the month of February as daily specials. The specials vary from lasting menu offerings that have been served since day one with the Catfish Sloppy Joe to dishes that showcase Moonen’s passion for sustainable seafood such as the Brandade of Scallops and Shrimp with a black truffle vinaigrette, shaved fennel and frisee salad. Playful dishes representing Moonen’s role in popular culture also make an appearance on the anniversary menu, including dishes from his time as a contestant on the second season of Bravo’s Top Chef Masters. This menu will allow diners to get a taste of rm seafood’s history and what elements have made the restaurant a staple for finding pristine seafood in Las Vegas.
The distinguished rm seafood opened its doors in February 2005 and has since received a number of accolades for its culinary offerings, conscious ingredient sourcing practices, and the welcoming demeanor of its hands-on owner and chef. Throughout the past decade, Moonen has created an array of memorable dishes, as well as explored the many facets associated with the experience of being involved in the culinary world.
