The original white party is back in NYC! If you don’t remember, the “Dinner in White” is a worldwide event spanning six continents in which people have a meal dressed in white in a temporary dining setup in a public space. Diners are required to provide their own food, tables, chairs and tablecloths. Only a select number of participants who have previously signed up are made privy to the location the day of the dinner, and generally converge in an iconic urban location. The next installment takes place in New York city after a two year hiatus.

Launched with just a handful of friends by François Pasquier in 1988, Le Dîner en Blanc® de Paris continues to assemble close to 10,000 guests every year. In 2018 a record 17,000 guests from Paris and around the world gathered at the Esplanade des Invalides to celebrate its 30th anniversary. The French capital’s most prestigious sites have played host to the event over the years: The Pont des Arts, the Eiffel Tower, Place Vendôme, the Château de Versailles, the Esplanade de Notre-Dame, the Esplanade des Invalides, the periphery of the Place de l’Étoile, the Champs-Élysées, Place de la Concorde, Le Louvre Pyramid, Trocadéro Esplanade, and the Palais Royal Garden! The Paris police continue to tolerate this ‘wild’ gathering, if not perhaps even wishing they could join in!

While the event is special wherever it’s held, Le Dîner en Blanc New York is home to us and ready to celebrate its 10th year of magic in the Big Apple!  The team behind the event wants you to come celebrate 10 years of camaraderie, 10 years of delices culinaire, 10 years of elegance, and 10 years of mystique! Care to venture a guess as to where this year’s epic event may take place? They’ll never tell – but can now officially tell you when…September 19, 2022!
