What could top al fresco dining at one of Boston’s premier restaurant patios? How about a sprawling feast under the blooming foliage at Public Garden. That’s exactly what Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro will be offering throughout the summer with its popular “Picnic Style” amenity. Patrons need only call one hour ahead of time and place an order from executive chef Lucas Sousa’s special picnic-style lunch or Beacon Hill Bistro’s regular dinner menu. Located just steps from the Boston Common and the Public Garden, Beacon Hill will pack your choice of items in a rustic basket along with a blanket for leisurely outdoor dining. Midday options include a Connecticut-style crab roll, a croque madame, a goat cheese omelet, and steak frites.
