Lawn Dining

Stock the basket with reusable, good-looking picnic equipment.


Whether you’re outside at the Naumburg Bandshell this Wednesday (the 25th) for the Brooklyn Philharmonic’s tango-infused take on Vivaldi, or at Pier 54’s RiverFlicks screening of The Matrix the same night, you’ll need to eat dinner. The Sebago picnic basket ($79.99 at Central Park’s Dairy Visitor Center & Gift Shop, mid-park at 65th St.; 212-794-6564) has a charming Little Red Riding Hood exterior that masks its high-tech inside: an insulated, zippered compartment that will keep deviled eggs or chicken salad out of the salmonella zone and chill your rosé or Corona—if you remember to toss in an ice pack. The basket comes stocked with service for two, including silverware, ceramic plates, glassware, and cotton linens. For more picnic equipment and nosh, click ahead.
