We booked the Larte picnic earlier in the week and were informed that it likely wouldn’t go forward as they didn’t have enough reservations. We’d gone last winter and enjoyed it very much so I was a bit surprised. In the end they called me Saturday morning and said they’d love to welcome us.
When we arrived we were the only ppl there- which was kind of weird- but with 4yr old twins it’s a bit less stress/pressure too 😅. By the time we left the all the picnic areas were occupied- but they’d only set up four. Apparently there had been a large wedding the night before and all the chairs/tables from that were still out. The massive lawn where all the tables/chairs are were all ‘picnic grounds’ last winter. I didn’t grab a great demonstrative picture of it but each individual area is really cute with bean bag chairs, umbrella and a low table structure.
The food was great- we got the picnic basket for two and expected to have to order some supplements but it came with 4 huge sandwiches, two salads, olives, three blocks of cheese and bread/ crunchy bread sticks. For 100 more we enjoyed bottomless wine for two hours. We ended up taking several sandwiches home. The food quality was great-everything was fresh and really tasted excellent.
I think this is an excellent option while the weather is so great. I don’t always want a massive lunch and as parents of young kids it’s SO great to be outside and just let the kids run around. It’s absolutely kid friendly without sacrificing a great meal. I wouldn’t hesitate to go with friends either. Sometime I just want to lounge on the grass and enjoy too!
I do wish they’d start promoting this, Larte where are you?! And have it running at full capacity again. Last year they had live music and it just seemed much more intentional but I enjoyed it this afternoon too.
