You know that saying, “The most popular person at the picnic is the person who brings the Gregoire potato puffs”? No? Maybe it hasn’t secured its place in our national vocabulary yet, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t true. Gregoire is a tiny, to-go picnic supply spot that does a bunch of great sandwiches, but its stars are the potato puffs, which are like tater tots but infinitely better. They’re crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside, and it’s technically impossible to order enough of them. Order ahead online, pick up as much food as you can carry, and enjoy a picnic with friends at Tilden park. Or in your living room.
