The Nethermead in Prospect Park
And now for the last, distinct part of Prospect Park in which to picnic. The Nethermead is an open and expansive meadow right in the middle of the park that was not, luckily, completely
ruined by the Great Googa Mooga. It is still a perfectly decent place to picnic, surrounded as it is by some of the oldest trees in the park. You can most easily reach the Nethermead by entering the park at Prospect Park West and 9th Street. There are lots of food options in the area, but, I've gotta say, as long as you're this close to it, you might as well hit up Talde. Talde might not spring to mind as the best place to do take-out, but, in fact, a lot of the food is perfect for just that. Order the lobster bao, the spicy lemongrass chicken, the bacon pad Thai, and the Korean chicken wings and waffles. You will be in guaranteed picnic heaven. There's nothing else quite like it. Enjoy the summer.
Talde; 369 7th Avenue, Park Slope
