Summer may not be here yet, officially speaking, but picnicking season is already in full swing. Perfect Picnic, a new food shop and picnic-delivery service based on the Lower East Side, has you covered for all your packed-lunch needs.
Wendy Weston, who co-owned the now-defunct Aidan Savoy gallery on Stanton Street, has set up shop at 9 Clinton Street, in the storefront formerly occupied by DigitalFix. She’s offering set picnics and bespoke lunches, all packed and ready to take to the park, starting at $28. The Classic includes a fresh-baked baguette, two local cheeses, two Salumeria Biellese cured meats, olives, fig jam from Beth’s Farmhouse Kitchen, two bottles of Poland Spring water, and two dark chocolate sea-salt caramels from Liddabit Sweets, as well as cutlery, plates, a cloth, and a reusable tote. Perfect Picnic is starting with delivery to Battery Park and hopes to add Central Park and Prospect Park service soon.
