Open Wednesday – Sunday

Effective August 16, 2021, the city of New Orleans is under a mask and vaccination mandate. The mandate requires all staff and guests twelve years of age and older to provide proof of at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine or proof of a negative COVID-19 test result from the past 72 hours.

Accepted proofs of vaccine: LA Wallet App SMART Health Card, An original, digital photo, or photocopy of CDC Vaccination Card (both sides), An official vaccine record issued by another state, a foreign nation, or the WHO

Accepted proof of negative COVID-19 test: Physical or electronic test results from a PCR COVID-19 test indicating negative results within the past 72 hours

Antigen tests (often referred to as rapid tests) will not be accepted.

The city of New Orleans mask mandate requires masks for all staff and guests while indoors. We appreciate your cooperation and ask that guests wear a mask when entering the building, while moving around the building, and while having an extended conversation with our staff.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Hopefully, measures like this will allow us all to stay healthy and put Covid behind us sooner rather than later. Here’s to saving Mardi Gras 2022! If you have any questions, please call the restaurant at (504) 266-2810.

\’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.
