Just because we can’t dine indoors at restaurants doesn’t mean we can’t take the feast outside. That has never been more evident than now, with the Ultimate Seafood Experience, brought to you by Perfect Picnic and Citarella‘s Joe Gurrera. Picnic outside with this indulgent array of offerings, which include all your under-the-sea favorites. King crab legs, steamed lobster, shrimp, local Picnic oysters, truffle butter, avocado and spicy chipotles crab spread are just some of the amazing things you will find inside. Whether you’re currently residing in the city or out in the Hamptons, you can order up the ultimate picnic experience for $725, perfect for a special occasion.

Both ROKC and NR, Japanese cocktail bars and restaurants, helmed by Shigefumi Kabashima, have reopened for outdoor dining, drawing inspiration from 19th century Japan. A new chef is whipping up delicious fare and both restaurants also offer pick up and delivery. Limited tables at each restaurant ensure safe outdoor dining, and an huge array of craft cocktails are available in one-of-a-kind containers.
