Picnic boxes available now (Early March)

  • 8

Hi all --

Taking Mr. BB to the opera on Wednesday. Was thinking of making a picnic dinner to take -- but swinging towards the idea of buying one. Any recommendations on places that make good boxed dinners pre-Hollywood Bowl season?

      Go pick up bread and cheese and nibbly bits from TJ's

      1. I don't know wher you live but there is a great little place in north Glendale/Montrose that opened recently, called INGREDIENTS (www.ingredientsshop.com
        )The chef/owener used to own Bistro Verdu and he can put together the most delicious boxes...make sure to get a Duck Confit Salad or and don't forget a cheese plate.
        Not only are his ingredients top drawer, his presentations have been beautiful.

          1. Nicole's Gourmet Foods in South Pasadena does to-go picnics. Another place, close by, is Julienne's and they might do them as well.
