The Picnick Smoked Cart Is Apparently MIA
Last week, lunch’er Serene wrote in to say she went looking for the Picnick Smoked cart and that she was basically led on a wild goose chase at the two Picnick kiosks in Battery Park looking for supposed BBQ items served there. Indeed, the Picnick Web site says that the “full BBQ menu is available at the kiosks.” When I went to look on Tuesday, that was definitely not the case. Sure, both of the kiosks had BBQ pulled pork sandwiches, but that was the extent of any offerings other than regular overpriced sandwiches and salads. And the cart itself was not at its spot on Wall & South streets. The Picnick site also says that a “Smoked BBQ Cart is coming soon to the Battery.”
Anybody know what’s going on with this? The two people working at the kiosks had no idea, and my attempts to find out from the Picnick people haven’t panned out. Of course, if I do hear back from them I’ll let know when and if they’re back for the season. Otherwise, with Express BBQ down and out, there’s always a little cheap-ass Texas Rotisserie & Grill to fulfill your BBQ needs.
