Central Park picnics just got fancier: Alice Waters is now customizing baskets for Mandarin Oriental guests. A few foods she’s selected include local artisan salumi, eco-chic bamboo cutlery, French radishes, rustic pizza Bianca and thyme-grilled quail. A portion of the proceeds supports her Edible Schoolyard program. mandarinoriental.com.
