On gorgeous summer days, it seems as if everyone heads to restaurant patios and decks for lunch. Yes, it’s nice to be outside, but do you really want to wait forever for a cramped table? The Beacon Hill Hotel and Bistro has a romantic, old fashioned and chic solution: a picnic.

Just call ahead one hour and order your meal picnic-style, grab that special someone and dine outside at the Public Gardens (just steps away from the Bistro) or at the location of your choice. They’ll even give you a blanket and a basket!


Choose items from the following menu for your picnic in the park:

Tea-cured gravlax, herbed potato salad, green beans and baby greens, $13

Seasonal greens, pear, goat cheese, endives and hazelnuts, $9

Frisée salad with blue cheese, apples, bacon and walnuts, $9

Mediterranean grilled chicken salad with tomato, feta and green olives, $10

Lentil and farro burger, baby spinach, spiced yogurt and red pepper salad, $12

Steak salad with organic romaine, walnuts, blue cheese, tomatoes and red wine vinaigrette, $18

Baked croque madame, smoked ham, béchamel, soft farm egg with baby greens and pommes frites, $13

Maine crab roll with crème fraîche, red peppers and mustard, greens and pommes frites, $14


The picnic-style menu is available beginning June 6 (and will continue until the weather turns cold) on Mondays through Fridays from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.  For more information, go to www.beaconhillhotel.com or call 617-723-1133 or 617-723-7575.
