The new "Posh Picnic" package creates a “lavish culinary adventure perfect for two.” Guests who choose this option receive a Deluxe Park View Suite with views overlooking Central Park along with champagne, chocolate strawberries, Ossetra caviar and more. These offerings are also in addition to all of the amenities that also come with the original Picnic in the Park package.
