Nestled on an East Village corner, Picnic’s warm interior casts an inviting glow on the bustling neighborhood outside. Floor-to-ceiling picture windows offer a clear view of the wooden tables and antique filing cabinets that make for a charming, rustic interior. The playful menu, consisting of Between the Bun options and more fully conceptualized entrées, allows Picnic to function as either a gourmet burger joint or sophisticated farm-fresh restaurant, depending on how you order. Skip small plates like the dry macaroni and cheese; Picnic is all about the sides, and you’ll want to save room for dishes like the pickled vegetables and sweet-potato casserole. Meats like the duck breast and half roast chicken are rich and moist, and enhanced by accoutrements like creamy corn grits, juicy pork belly, and braised collard greens. Ask for a dessert menu: The selection changes daily in the form of market-inspired specials.Recommended Dishes
