Ate here for lunch, since the other palces around were jam packed. It was good, but somewhat pricey for a sandwich, chips and drink. I know it is NYC, but it was still good and I would be willing to come back.

While staying at the Marriott Springhill suites I needed a quick lunch. Right up the block I found The Picnic Basket. Quick service and good quality. I enjoyed the turkey Mediterranean sandwich on gluten-free bread and a side of quinoa. Enjoy.

The sandwiches came out fast and fresh! The location is extremely convenient. Great value, especially considering the area. The crunch tuna was definitely my favorite of the two sandwiches. I would definitely go back!

The food is innovative, fresh, and delicious. Our order of sandwiches and salads were ready at the time we ordered and while there was a slight mixup in the order, the substituted food was also quite good. Excellent menu options have something for every palate!

First time visiting The Picnic Basket and I will be back! Ordered the Goat Cheese salad and it was delicious! Cranberries, mixed greens, and beets created a tasty, healthy lunch option. It was crowded but the line moved quickly and the wait tolerable. I might...More
