Perfect Sunday? Prosecco and Pork Picnic on the High Line

The spread.

With warmer weather a bit more steadily upon us these past few weeks, it has been great to finally spend some time outdoors, and actually see the sun. What better to do outside than enjoy a little al fresco dining, especially one with great food that involves absolutely no time in the kitchen? Last Sunday a few friends and I enjoyed a beautiful day on the High Line after a quick trip to Chelsea Market. We stopped at Buon Italia first for a pound of prosciutto, some porchetta, and mozzarella cheese. Then at Amy’s Bread, we picked up some focaccia bread, a baguette, and olive rolls. No meal would be complete without dessert, so we had to get a sample of every flavor brownie to share at Fat Witch Bakery. And then, proving to be our only bad decision of the day, I bought some prosecco at Chelsea Wine Vault, which was ice-cold in five minutes thanks to their express chiller. How bad could it be, right? Well, apparently, our neighbors up on the High Line weren’t big fans of our amazing brunch spread, as we were shortly reported, and reprimanded by a park ranger. But, the meal was amazing, and the day was not ruined. We left the park having several laughs over the situation, and incredibly full from pork products, which is really all you can ask for from a Sunday afternoon.
