Although Picnic is a fast-food restaurant, it purchases its produce fresh and local everyday and makes all of its food on site. Within its three floors “the vegan [5] McDonald’s” can accomodate up to 120 patrons, but the majority of its customers are stop-in office-people that work nearby.

The interior space is adorned with plenty of cute and quirky pieces. Hanging against big windows you can find eco-lamps made from biodegradable mimbre [6], and an ivy-covered logo marks its entrance door. Mix-match vintage furniture, organic fabrics with water-based ink patterns, plenty of plants, and low-energy and natural light make Picnic’s interiors as green as their menu. The fast-food restaurant also periodically holds eco-design fairs and organic gardening workshops.

Fast, vegan and delicious, Picnic in central Buenos Aires [7] features great food with a cool sustainable Scandinavian twist.
