May 10, 2010 - PRLog -- Holding a private VIP-only grand opening on Thursday, May 13, is Picnic, a hip European-style new eatery that brings an imaginative new concept in dining by offering luscious brunch fare all day. This eatery is the inspiration of former model-turned-restaurateur Latisha Gallagher, who brings her glam élan to Miami Beach.

Creating a popular restaurant that offers what today’s diners crave was Latisha’s destiny. “My mom worked in my grandmother’s restaurant in Trinidad, my aunt owned an eatery in Brooklyn, and my other aunt ran a catering business. Feeding people is in my blood,” she says. Upon spying this corner Purdy Road area, located in the center of one of Miami Beach’s most up-and-coming neighborhoods, Latisha instantly knew she had found the perfect place for her creation. “The energy felt right,” she says.

A stickler for perfection, Latisha opened her restaurant last month to gauge the reaction to her concept. Encouraged, she closed it briefly, while embarking on a plan to ensure that both food and service met her rigorous standards, so that, when the restaurant officially reopens to the public later this week, Picnic will be better than ever.  
Look for Latisha’s original specialties, including French baked eggs,  “Not Your Mother’s Bennies,” her signature take on Eggs Benedict  (also available in three other ways), and her poffetjes, feathery silver dollar pancakes. Burgers come in seven ways, including “Picnic 66,” topped with onions, mushrooms and Swiss cheese, and the” Picnic Reuben Burger,” served on a flaky brioche. Basket choices include wings, fizzled onion rings, or Fish and Chips, made with Latisha’s secret, homemade, beer battered breading. For dessert, the Jumbo Cupcakes may become a Picnic favorite.

With her flair for design, Latisha personally selected every facet of the décor, transforming this authentic industrial loft into a sparkling eatery. Inside, diners nest in enormous oversized booths, dine at sharp-looking colorful tables, or perch on gingham patterned stools.  The 10-foot high definition screen makes Picnic the perfect setting to enjoy movies and sports.  Every touch, down to the little artichoke-style candleholders and the silvery pails holding the salt-and-pepper shakers, is Latisha’s vision.

Picnic also features a full bar, with house specialties that can be savored tableside, at the striking light-up marbleized bar, or in the outdoor cocktail lounge where comfortable sofas and wrought-iron garden-like are arranged around the picnic-style “lawn” of artificial turf.
Latisha will unveil her brand-new Picnic at the exclusive VIP party, where her guests will enjoy an assortment of Picnic specialties from the kitchen and the bar.

Picnic Miami is located at 1400 20th St., Miami Beach, opens for brunch, lunch and dinner Tuesday-Thursday, 11 a.m. to midnight, Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. and Sunday, 11 a.m. to sunset. (305) 673-4755. www.picnicmiami.com.
