Davio’s Packs a Picnic For Two

Davio’s Packs a Picnic For Two

Doesn’t a picnic in Central Park sound like the perfect idea for a date or some relaxing hang time with a friend? Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse has everything taken care of. Guests can call ahead (at least 24 hours in advance) before their special lunch or dinner outing and order a three-course meal of fresh salads, sandwiches and desserts, complete with still or sparkling bottled water.

You may want to go on a couple picnics this summer just so you can sample more of the food offered on the generous picnic-specific menu. Each picnic allows two selections per course, for a total of six items.

The four salad options each come with a different leafy green, various combinations of vegetables, legumes and/or fruits, as well as a dressing. Three of the salads also have cheese on them. (If you are like me, that is an important factor because cheese automatically turns any salad up to 11.)

All the sandwiches are winners too. Vegetarians can order a classic caprese (fresh mozzarella, basil, sliced tomato, extra virgin olive oil, aged balsamic vinegar) or the vegeterina (oven roasted eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash, spicy tomato marmellata). Meat-lovers have the choice of sandwiches that have prosciutto, grilled chicken breast or grilled steak. Every sandwich can be made on your choice of house made French style baguette, rye baguette or roasted garlic focaccia.

For dessert, picnickers can select from fresh fruit and berries or assorted Italian cheeses.

See what I mean about so many great choices?

This picnic for two costs $115 (not including tax, gratuity and additional beverages, if ordered) and comes with the basket full of goodies, as well as a complimentary blanket. When the basket is returned to the restaurant, guests will be refunded $50.

Davio’s is offering the picnic basket dining option though Aug. 31, 2016.

Buon appetito!
