Millenium Park for picnics in Boston

MILLENNIUM PARK
398 Gardner St, West Roxbury

This is a good spot to walk the pooch or go for a hilly jog, sure — but it's a great spot to plant your fat ass in the grass, unfurl that plaid blanket, and open up the basket for some lunch. (Sorry, we didn't mean that; your ass is lovely.) There's a whole bunch to explore here — a playground, bike trails, the Charles River — and you get a wide-open view of downtown Boston.

For the Carnivores

THE REAL DEAL DELI | 736 Centre St, Jamaica Plain | 617.522.1181

At this nearby Centre Street deli, go for the Godfather, for two reasons. Number one: the name itself. Number two: it's a mega-meat combo of corned beef and roasted turkey.

For the Herbivores

HIMALAYAN BISTRO | 1735 Centre St, West Roxbury | 617.325.3500

Not strictly a vegetarian place, but this Nepali/Indian joint offers a pretty sizable veggie-friendly menu. Go for the aloo bodi tama: fresh-diced potatoes, black-eye beans, and bamboo shoots cooked Himalayan style.

  •   THE BEST OF BOSTON'S MOBILE CUISINE  |  June 09, 2011
    Summer in Boston traditionally means exploring the city, getting sunburned, and ironically (but totally seriously) drinking Mike's Hard Lemonade. But now that meals-on-wheels mania has put the boot on our fair city, it also means chasing down every food truck in town.
  •   CARNIVORES AND HERBIVORES MAKING PEACE -- ON A BLANKET  |  June 13, 2011
    When dinosaurs roamed the Earth, the carnivores often ate the herbivores. But then we evolved. Today, meat-eaters and plant-eaters can coexist — and even share a blanket for a jolly picnic in the park.
