Susan Feniger's Street launches carryout bento boxesWhenever you need to picnic in style. Whenever you need to flaunt your foodie street cred. Whenever you're too lazy to pack your own lunch. Susan Feniger's Street wants to be there.

Known for its upscale array of pan-ethnic street food, the restaurant on Monday began offering six-item, prix fixe ($25) bento boxes, but only for takeout.

Each box contains five set items: pan-fried Indian semolina cakes; varenyky, spinach-filled Ukrainian dumplings; paani puri, stuffed puffs of dough with a yogurt-cilantro dipping sauce; Chinese sesame cakes filled with red bean paste; and a peanut butter and jelly cookie.

You choose the entrée: Korean short ribs, a crispy lamb taco, Japanese shizo shrimp, chilled soba noodles or tatsutage fried chicken. All bento boxes include either a tamarind ginger cooler or chrysanthemum mint iced tea.

You must call in your order 24 hours in advance, and you can pick it up in the valet parking area behind Street.
