need suggestions for great box lunches or to go meals

Mary Pat Jun 3, 2011 02:21 PM

I'm planning to go to the Austin Symphony Pops concert on Saturday. Instead of cooking and taking food, would like some ideas on tasty to go food or prepared box meals to buy on the way downtown. Anywhere from Cedar Park west to MoPac to downtown will work.

Nothing tasty comes to mind, but I'm sure there is something out there.

    I've had good box lunches from Central Market... if I recall, roast beef and dill havarti on some type of artisan bread and kettle chips... not fancy but it was tasty.

      Jasons Deli has great box lunches. Of course, Whole Foods downtown. Pick your own preprepared foods and get them to go.

        the whole foods mother ship has a great selection of pre-packed items.
        and, you could always do the hot/salad, sushi, or stir fry bars and take it to-go.

          Get a cheese plate from Antonelli's!

            oooo that's a great idea.
            they will put one together for you, based on your preferences.
            you could also get some of barrie's bread and some charcuterie!

              Antonelli's it is - just what I wanted - and might have remembered two weeks too late - thanx

                If I'm remebering correctly, I think Antonellis will even do all of the above (cheese, bread, charcuterie) plus some wine and maybe one of the preserves or desserts they sell, and put it in a picnic basket for you.
