We dream of the days spent in Central Park, setting up a blanket and placing the picnic basket down, while dressed in a gingham full circle dress, with bright red lipstick and the cutest little bow set atop your head. As you wait for your sailor to come and meet you, you pinch a few flowers from wherever you see one and lay it on top of the basket for that extra touch. Its summertime, so the trees are alive and flourishing with green leaves. Those were the intimate gatherings you long for and miss the most.
Suzanne Latapie, owner of Bistro chat Noir is here to make all our picnic daydreams come true this summer.
