New York Will Celebrate Its 8th Le Dîner en Blanc With Over 6500 People Next Month
On September 17th Dîner en Blanc returns for the 8th consecutive year to New York. This year will be the largest NY event so far — 6,500 guests dressed head-to-toe in chic white will gather at a secret iconic location that is revealed at the very last moment to dine and dance under the stars! The legendary all white French-inspired pop-up dinner is a worldwide phenomenon — this year over 130,000 people in 80 cities spanning 30 countries will attend — 32 cities in the U.S.!
In an exciting first, renowned chef and Michelin Star recipient restaurateur Marc Forgione will be curating four special picnic baskets for guests in New York who order through Le Dîner en Blanc.
Forgione noted, “I’m excited to be a part of one of the biggest, most sensational events in the world. I’ve always heard that Le Dîner en Blanc is an unparalleled and revolutionary experience and I can’t wait to contribute some of my signature dishes and inventive flavors to the party!”
Le Dîner en Blanc is by invitation only, traditionally issued by friends and friends of friends who have participated in the past. Another means of attending is via the often-extensive wait lists in each city.
The event has proven to be such a beloved tradition that across the country the number of cities has increased to 32 with five premieres in 2018 alone:Charlotte, Decatur, Fort Lauderdale, Indianapolis, Memphis, and Wilmington. While new cities join the adventure every year, in some cities like Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., Le Dîner en Blanc has become THE social gathering of the year.
