Rustic Italian Picnic Basket Set for Four
It's still summer, and restaurants have been promoting happy hour deals and outdoor seating all season long. But for those who want to just sit on the grass, here's a cool deal for you: a rustic Italian picnic basket set by Asellina in the Gansevoort Park Avenue Hotel.
Now, this isn't your normal picnic basket. It costs $150 and needs to be reserved at least 48 hours ahead.
Each basket contains the following:
Bottle of wine (Sant Aturo Pinot Grigio or Sant Aturo Montepulciano wine) Bottle of water Panna or Pellegrino Small bites Cured cacciatorino salami Small wheel of tomino cheese Roasted organic peppers and olives Fresh grape on the vine Assorted mini rolls Big bites Handmade pasta salad Sicilian tuna salad Dessert (Lemon pound cake and berries)
They're also throwing in: four acrylic plates, acrylic wine glasses, acrylic water glasses, acrylic cutlery sets (knife, fork, spoon), linen-like napkins, and a checkered tablecloth.
