Step Into History

Step Into History and Stay Awhile! I love living in Rogers Park, so it was a natural fit for me to open Picnic in my neighborhood. But exactly where was that perfect space? It all came together when I stepped into the property at 7301 Sheridan Road: A wonderfully light filled space thanks to a glass wall of west facing windows, along with a nod to the past, with its ornate fireplace, classic columns and…

For me, it was “business as pleasure”, as I spent days planting, potting and arranging a Parisian style jardin along the expanse of our front window at Picnic. It is now a charming Cafe Society type space of bistro tables and chairs, amidst such natural blooming beauty! The idea and the ideal of this labor of love is intentional. Because…
