Picnic Baskets Are Back at Davio’s


Looking to get some quality picnic time in before the end of the summer? Better get a move on, it’s going fast! So fast that you probably shouldn’t waste time packing a basket yourself, especially since the folks at Davio’s Back Bay have you covered with their lovely picnic baskets, available for pre-order and pick-up. For $125 you’ll get a perfectly portable basket filled with your choice of three courses – salad, sandwich and dessert, plus still or sparkling water – to take over to the Boston Common or the Public Garden (or any place else you deem picnic-worthy). Feast on house-made chicken salad or tuna salad, oven-roasted turkey or caprese sandwiches, and finish strong with some fresh fruit, cannoli or tiramisu (full menu is below). You don’t even need to bring a blanket, Davio’s has got that covered too! You can, however, add a bottle of wine or Champagne from their extensive list (depending on your final al fresco destination – you don’t want to run afoul of open container laws). Each picnic basket serves two, and they are available Monday through Friday from 11:00am to 3:00pm through September 30th. Be sure to order at least two hours in advance by calling 617.357.4810. You can email shannon@davios.com for an updated menu on the day of your picnic (selections are subject to change) or with any additional questions.
