Bröd (1201 Second Ave.), the Upper East Side Nordic eatery known for their tasty open-faced sandwiches on homeade bread, is giving away free picnic baskets on June 18th in honor of National Picnic Day. Guests can grab a free Nordic lunch including a choice of one savory smorrebrod, a specialtyside salad and one sweet dessert smorrebrod -- all on the house (while supplies last)! Take your food to go and celebrate this national holiday in nearby Central Park -- don't forget one of our new favorite bottled summer drinks! It may not be perfect picnic weather, but there's nothing more worth celebrating than a free lunch.
