Where we've featured it
Marlena in Bernal Heights is taking full advantage of their proximity to Precita Park (it’s right across the street) - they have three types of picnic baskets you can order, all of which come with your very own blanket. What goes in the baskets ranges from charcuterie and their housemade pâté a campagne to fried chicken sandwiches with buffalo sauce. You can reserve one ahead of time here.
Located on the corner of Precita Park in Bernal Heights, Marlena is a new restaurant that’s doing four-course meals for outdoor dining. The prix fixe menu is seasonal, but you can expect to see things like pork collar with delicata squash, honey nut squash soup, and creme fraiche cake with huckleberry compote. And if your idea of a perfect afternoon involves cured meats and a large patch of grass, you can order their charcuterie, cheese, and dessert picnic basket (it even comes with a blanket) and take it with you to the park.
