(Glen Warchol | The Salt Lake Tribune) Picnic offers an option to grabbing a sandwich downtown.
Why take the subway when you can have a Picnic?
Fast food good » Picnic’s a recent addition to downtown’s lunch options.

Most of us working stiffs find ourselves eating lunch at our desks, in our cars or, if we’re lucky, on a sunny bench or city lawn.

Still, we like to keep some standards. Like buying from a locally owned mom-and-pop business that actually cares how they treat customers. And meat, cheese and veggies that aren’t sliced like microscope samples (you know the chain we’re talking about). And how about a kosher pickle spear that bites back?

If you find yourself on the east side of downtown Salt Lake City in need of sustenance, try Picnic. It opened three months ago in the little hole-in-the-wall next to that Classic Cleaner you pass on 300 South. Picnic’s interior is bright with a couple tables­—if you’re one of those rare worker bees who’s actually got time for a proper lunch break.

Sandwiches don’t have clever names—yet—just descriptions like BLT; tuna; turkey, bacon, avocado; baked ham and veggie (with gluten-free bread, if you want).

We sampled a corned beef, swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion and spicy brown mustard on marble rye. $4.90 for a generous half (a whole sandwich is $6.90). It came with choice of a side salad (we rolled with a very basic potato salad.)

Picnic, 501 E. 300 South, Salt Lake City. 801-521-4522, www.picnicslc.com.
