From sandwiches to quiches, from bagels to husbands, imagination has no limits and delivery arrives directly to the park chosen for your picnic
Never before has the desire to be outdoors open its way. At the same time, due to the lockdown, many bars, patisseries and restaurants have refined their organization skills for delivery and take away. On the other hand, in times of crisis it is necessary to invent new commercial proposals and, if not already there, to launch a fashion. This is the case with picnics, with boxes that are already beautiful ready to take to the park or directly on the beach. Just arrange the delivery (home or takeaway) in time for departure and you're done. We have selected the five proposals that are depopulating in Rome.
Experience Bistrot Villa Pamphili
Who better than the Vivi Bistrot that is already in the park. For them, the picnic is an art and the precursors in terms of baskets can be defined without fear. On the other hand, the location of one of the offices of the Vivi Bistrot in the heart of Villa Pamphili is a wedding invitation. The game is simple: just order your picnic at least an hour before and everything will be ready to eat barefoot in the park in front. In the Deluxe version you can also book the classic wicker basket with the towel and your front row seat. Consistent with the green atmosphere in which it is located, the Vivi Bistrot is keen to offer rigorously compostable packaging and its proposals range from sandwiches to quiches, from organic salads to hamburgers.
A picnic in Piazza Navona? It has never been easier. Just book your picnic box (but also brunch or any of the appetizing dishes of chef Ornella De Felice) and go to Coromandel, which is just a stone's throw away, to collect it in person. Alternatively, wherever you are, there is Cosaporto that takes you there. Among Coromandel's proposals, sandwiches, bagels, quiches, pancakes and plumcakes, in short, everything that comes to mind is good that can be eaten in a brunch or an outdoor picnic.
While under the sign Cafè Merenda you can read "Desserts and cuisine" makes it clear how many delicacies can be found in this delightful corner of Marconi. A place where you feel good, but which, if necessary, will reach you anywhere in Rome with its boxes. With the lockdown, the pastry chef / cook Chiara Caruso has specialized in the preparation of boxes for all tastes, from breakfast to brunch, sweet and savory. The leavened products are exceptionally well made, but the savory whims that Chiara prepares for the boxes dedicated to brunch do not disappoint either. Small anticipation, the family picnic box is out, which also includes a children's menu, with gifts for the little ones: a little attention that is appreciated.
The famous Roman boulangerie-pâtisserie led by Giuseppe Solfrizzi has recently launched its online shop, through which you can order all the delights, both sweet and savory, that the pastry chef prepares. Apulian by birth and French by training, Solfrizzi ranges easily from French pastries to focaccias, from baguettes to loaves. He also recently launched the Pic Nic Box, a combination of products for two that contains baguettes, two tasty quiches, a leavened dessert, three delicious macarons and two sweet verrines to combine with a selection of fruit juices. It can be ordered by calling or writing to the shop and on request it is delivered directly to the entrance of the chosen park.
Antico Forno Roscioli
The famous bakery of the Roscioli brothers has also started to deliver throughout Rome, with the collaboration of Cosaporto, with whom it has developed a series of boxes. They are not explicitly designed for picnics, but in any case for a tasty lunch, perhaps with savory croissants, maritozzi, sandwiches, or bagels (or all these things together, it depends on how many you are). There are also sweet proposals and the legendary pizza box of the Roscioli brothers, who can possibly be added to the order for a really tasty picnic.
