Summer Wedding Menu

A Casual Summer Wedding
The Picnic House, Brooklyn

A summer salad elegant enough for a plated dinner or served alongside a picnic lunch:  tiny, sweet wild strawberries with figs, Nettle Meadow goat cheese (from the Adirondacks) and baby greens. Later in the summer, the farmers’ market at Union Square abounds with gorgeous heirloom tomatoes and fresh Long Island corn, inspiring two of our favorite summer hors d’oeuvres:  grilled corn elote and a succotash shot of corn, tomato, and scallions with a dash of sea salt for crunch.

For those who like down-home picnic food—don’t forget our rockin’ good skillet-fried chicken with a side of our artisanal mac & cheese. Our locally sourced, organic chicken is marinated overnight in buttermilk to make that free-ranging bird as tender and tasty as possible.
