QUEENS — A Queens seafood restaurant wants to give you a break from cooking duties this Valentine’s Day by offering a high-end seafood take-out dinner.

“Romance-to-Go,” offered by the renowned London Lennie’s in Rego Park, includes a 3-lb. lobster for two, split and stuffed with jumbo lump crab meat.

“A lot of regular foodies don’t like to go out on Valentine’s Day because it’s overcrowded,” said  Marcelle Lashley, the restaurant’s marketing director. “So we created this take-out option for our customers.”

The dinner, which costs $160, comes with two jumbo lump meat crab stacks with avocado and mango drizzled with tomato sherry vinaigrette and chive oil, and lobster bisque for two.

Dessert is a marbled chocolate tulip filled with raspberry mousse, mixed berries and chocolate drizzle.

There is also romance-to-go kit with a candle and rose petals and “fool-proof prep instructions” on how to warm up the food.

London Lennie's is located at 63-88 Woodhaven Blvd. in Rego Park.
