ABOUT

Open Wednesday – Sunday

\’pik-(,)nik\ – 1. Derived from pique-nique in France in 1692, a jolly meal together in an idyllic spot (away from distractions and demands, often outdoors) a meal to which everyone contributes something and everyone is welcome; associated with card playing, drinking and conversation; evolved by New Orleanians into crawfish boils and Saints tailgating damn near anywhere; from poboys for 2 at The Fly to family reunions in City Park and elegant tented affairs on the banks of Bayou St. John; attended by people who have a strong affinity for gingham and are likely to “skinny dip at night.”

When the three founders of Picnic Provisions & Whiskey set out to celebrate the joyful American picnic, they sprinkled it with the culinary magic of New Orleans. Picnic Provisions & Whiskey is designed to create new memories for guests by offering them a warm, inviting place to picnic, share and laugh.

Our team also believes in giving back to the New Orleans community we all love. Picnic Provisions & Whiskey committed to fund at least one culinary/hospitality scholarship every year and we’re strong proponents of mentorship—in our kitchen, dining room and beyond. If you’re a mentor in your own industry, have an iced tea on us!

 

The team at Picnic Provisions & Whiskey is inspired by the five powerful words painted on the dining room wall:

Picnic. This is the essence of our culinary and hospitality philosophy.

Share. Without sharing, any meal—whether it be a picnic or elaborate tasting menu—is less memorable.

Laugh. Life can be serious, and some restaurants take their food too seriously, but a meal without laughter is a missed opportunity.

Yummy. Need we say more?

Purpose. Purpose fuels one’s soul, and the hospitality we provide our guests is our purpose in life.
