Summer can be a great time to visit Manhattan because it's a lot less crowded. The Carlton on Madison Avenue has teamed up with Country, Chef Geoffrey Zakarian's Michelin-rated restaurant to provide guests with a picnic basket to take to one of the city's many parks. The old-fashioned picnic basket includes treats such as rosemary flat bread, tarragon and thyme potato salad, green Muscat grapes, smokehouse almonds, tomato haricot vert salad, cold fried chicken, tuna ciabatta with eggplant caviar and roasted peppers, white truffle lollipops and dark chocolate bark with pistachios, a bottle of wine and two bottled waters. The package includes a night at the hotel ( $499 per night for a Deluxe Room are based on double occupancy) and a welcome amenity of sunscreen and an assortment of magazines and a Continental breakfast for two at The Café at Country. The package is available on weekends though the end of August.
