With limited access to activities this summer, we're embracing (even more than usual) the summer picnic. Fortunately, many city restaurants are offering pre-order and custom picnic baskets. Head to newyorker.com to read Hannah Goldfield's review of the "Perfect Picnic Baskets of The Pandemic," or to Eater.com for a more extensive list. Or make your own like we did with some fresh sour dough bread, spreadable cheese, proscuitto, cherry tomatoes and a can of Rose.
Of course, the food is only half of it. See below our picks for how to create the perfect setting.
