Seventh Annual Le Dîner en Blanc
August 22, 2017
Le Dîner en Blanc, the pop-up picnic that started in Paris over nearly 30 years ago, returns to New York City for its seventh consecutive year on Tuesday, August 22nd.
As the name implies, diners, who are dress elegantly and entirely in white, will gather in a secret location and eat together in a mass picnic. In addition to wearing all white, all are asked to bring their own picnic basket, stemware and white dinnerware, white tables and chairs. Over the course of the evening, the diners celebrate amid live music, complete with festive white balloons.
Once again, chef and restaurateur Todd English, will be curating special menus [available through the Le Dîner en Blanc website,] for those who wish to not prepare their own dinner. This year, guests can expect champagne by Canard Duchene Champagne, wine by Kenwood Vineyards, and water by Evian Badoit.
Around 7 PM, guests will wave their white napkins in the air to indicate the beginning of the dinner festivities. Once the dinner concludes, the elegant affair turns into a dance party.
