Cuisine’s “Classic” Picnic Baskets Are Now Available
April 24, 2024

When you think of a picnic, most of us have a mental picture of a white and red checked blanket on a green lawn complete with a wicker picnic basket, a bottle of wine, a French baguette, and all the usual suspects, including; cheese, crackers, grapes and some additional scrumptious “gourmet” fare.

Most of us have imagined one, maybe we’ve even planned one, but sadly, most of us have never actually enjoyed one.

Cuisine Restaurant and Chef Paul Grosz is out to change all of that.


Food historians tell us that picnics, evolved from the elaborate traditions of moveable outdoor feasts and that the word “Picnic”, is thought to be of French origin.

A typical picnic fare, back in those days, consisted of large displays of roasted game, a variety of fruits, vegetables, breads and enormous displays of sweets and pastries.

Not to be lost in the history of the French picnic, and its origins, is that Detroit itself, was settled by the French in 1701.

With that in mind, Cuisine Restaurant, considered my many, to be one of the city’s finest French inspired restaurants, is excited to launch its new “Classic” Picnic Basket offering, bringing its own, French inspired heritage and fare, to our once, French inspired city for us to enjoy, all throughout the summer and fall.

And we’re making it just for you, the way you want it, when you want it and it’s as easy as just giving us a call.

Our “Classic Basket” for 2 consists of the following, all for $95.
The basket (yours to keep), complete with disposable wares and napkins, and includes:
  • Your Choice of a Bottle of our House White or Red Wine.
  • A Fresh French Baguette (of course).
  • 2 Cheeses (1 Hard Cheese + Brie)
  • Seasonal grapes
  • Your Choice of a Charcuterie Selection or Niçoise Salad
  • Mini Tart du Jour

And, we have some ad-ons, which we think can really make your Classic Basket, even more special.

And they include:

  • Sliced Beef Tenderloin $55
  • Chilled Shrimp Cocktail $55
  • Grilled & Chilled Breast of Chicken $40
  • Vegetarian Ratatouille $30

And, of course, Chef Paul will be happy to suggest other menu items to complete your picnic fare.

Great for Boating, Up North Trips, Detroit River Walks, deck Parties, Summer Concerts, and of course PICNICS, Cuisine’s Classic Picnic Baskets are a simple AND delicious way to enjoy its award-winning food in a relaxed, casual and fun way.


To place your order, call 313-872-5110 and let us build a basket for you.


You’ve imagined one, now, you can actually enjoy one.


There’s nothing like a picnic.
