Your New Fave Picnic {The Grill}

The thought of going on a picnic or to some outdoor event and having a picnic has always enticed me — but then the thought of actually making and packing the picnic just starts to sound like way too much work.

So, when The Grill on the Alley in Westlake Village invited us to try one of their signature Summer Picnic Baskets, I was all for it.


The idea behind the Summer Picnic Baskets is that they are the perfect addition to those amazing Hollywood Bowl concerts {and if you haven’t been to one yet, we highly recommend it}. But, they are also a great idea for the many, many outdoor concerts and events right here in the 805. Or, you can grab one to surprise your date for a foolproof date night that is sure to impress.

Not only do you have several freshly prepared and delicious choices on the Picnic Menu, but everything is packed to share in an insulated tote bag that includes a tablecloth, napkins, cutlery, two plastic glasses, mixed nuts, and their famous sourdough bread and butter.

And to make things even better, you can purchase a bottle of wine or Pellegrino to go with your picnic.


We ordered the Mixed Grill picnic basket, which featured filet mignon, chicken breast with herbs, grilled shrimp with marinated asparagus spears, caprese salad, and key lime pie.

Everything was incredible.

We had a bottle of wine from a local winery in Los Olivos and enjoyed a lovely date night {sans baby} in the park (thanks mom and dad for watching Reese!).

My husband claimed it was the best picnic he’s ever had, and I definitely agree.



You can order from any of their three locations {Westlake, Beverly Hills, or Hollywood} — but be sure to call and order at least 24 hours in advance.

Enjoy your summer picnic, and you can thank us later when you impress your date/significant other/friends at your next outdoor event! Be sure to tag us @LocalLove805 and The Grill @TheGrillOnTheAlley on Instagram when you are out eating and drinking from your Summer Picnic Basket!
