Layout a festive picnic.
Fourth of July weekend is just around the corner, and it is time to plan how you're going to savor the warm weather and celebrate America's independence. With Miami-Dade beaches closed, your holiday might be better spent lying about in a garden, boating in the crystal blue waters, or in the comfort of your own backyard.
To make preparations easier, local chefs have assembled flavorful, globally inspired meals into portable options for you and your loved ones to enjoy. From a selection of gourmet meats to indulgent drinks, here are the best options to step up your Fourth of July game. Early ordering is strongly suggested.
Layout a festive picnic with chef Alon Ezra's basket, composed of a variety of specialties ranging from pulled chicken and lemon aioli brioche sliders to fresh avocado and arugula salad with Italian breadsticks. The feast continues with heirloom bruschetta with balsamic and fresh basil, a vegetable platter with homemade green herb dressing, and potato skins with barbecue seasoning. For dessert, enjoy gooey chocolate chips cookies and a watermelon bowl fruit salad. Wash it all down with homemade ground mint lemonade. The picnic menu costs $45 per person. Paper cutlery and checkered cloth and napkins are included. Order online by July 3. https://www.miaminewtimes.com/restaurants/miami-fourth-of-july-2020-picnic-baskets-to-go-11659868
