The best and easiest picnic in Chicago

It’s almost Memorial Day, and that means it’s time for one thing: picnics! The question isn’t whether to eat outdoors, it’s what to put in your basket. Here are three places that provide perfect picnic eats for summer:

1  The Roost Carolina Kitchen: This relatively new fried chicken joint makes chicken in three flavors: herb seasoned, spicy and Nashville hot. All are scrumptious, but be warned, the Nashville hot could require resuscitation (and a lot of water). Throw in some extras like baked mac and cheese, hand-cut potato chips and the peach cobbler for dessert. theroostcarolinakitchen.com.

2   Lucky’s Sandwich Company: These huge sandwiches make any picnic a hearty success. Whether you order the turkey and cheese, Italian sausage or any other of about a dozen options, what makes the meal is the seasoned coleslaw that comes right on top. luckysandwich.com.

3  The Florentine: Too busy to pack your own basket? This Chicago Loop gem does the work for you, with a choice of lavish baskets brimming with meats, cheeses, crunchy breads, grilled veggies and fruit. e2hospitality.com.
