Picnic in the park...best packable foods within a few blocks???
A picnic in Central Park usually involves a few hours of me running around town trying to get all of our favorites. No more!!!! I want this to be easy. I know about Zabar's, but I want better ideas than that. I want awesome, fresh food, lots of selection, packable, close-ish to the park, not a hassle. I know something has to exist...I just need one of you to tell me where to go.
What kinds of foods are you looking for? Are you looking for a "one stop" sort of place?
How about Whole Foods? Fairway?
Or Epicurie Boulud?
The food court at the Plaza?
Central Park is a huge place... when you say within a few blocks that could mean anywhere from 59th to 110th sts, east or west side.
What is your starting point?
