    Chef Curtis Stone Opens Picnic Society by Gwen at The Grove

    Chef and restaurateur Curtis Stone has opened Picnic Society by Gwen, a new full-
    service restaurant and grab and go picnic market at The Grove in Los Angeles.
    The new concept will be open for a four-month residency and will provide
    Angelinos several dining options.

    The extensive grab and go market will feature sandwiches, salads, charcuterie,
    vegetables, cheeses and other delicacies. Additionally, diners can choose to purchase
    pre-made baskets with miniature tables, blankets and cutlery for an easy ready to go
    picnic. There is also a second-floor al fresco terrace to enjoy dishes on site.
    Highlights of the menu include salad nicoise, lobster roll and steak frites with
    mustard.

    Inspired by the new behaviors of communities grappling with global change, Stone
    and his team wanted to create a safe and convenient way for individuals to find
    solace in the shared experience of simply enjoying a meal together. “The world has
    changed in recent months, and so has the way that we enjoy food and come
    together. I began thinking back to the stories of early 19th century gatherings of
    ‘picnic societies’ in Europe,” said Stone. “With good food and the right company, you
    can really make anywhere in the world your restaurant, and I look forward to
    elevating this experience for the Los Angeles community.”

    “I’m thrilled to welcome one of the finest chefs in the country, Curtis Stone, and his
    exceptional team to The Grove” remarked Rick Caruso, Founder and CEO of Caruso.
    “With several of his concepts in Los Angeles garnering Michelin stars, I’m truly
    inspired by his creativity and ingenuity in the kitchen as well as the innovative
    concept he plans to introduce through Picnic Society.”

    Picnic Society is now open and located at 189 The Grove Drive. For more
