It all began 25 years ago in Paris, when a few friends got together to share a meal dressed in white.
Since then, the concept has gone global. In 2014, more than forty events of this kind are scheduled on all five continents.
The New York edition of the Diner en Blanc will take place on the 25th of August. The key to this spotless event’s success? An original idea: an evening of chic picnic in a location kept secret until the very last moment!
The event is open to invited members and their friends as well as some of those who have signed up for the waiting list.
On the day, you will need to bring a picnic table, two chairs and a basket with your homemade food (for those of you who are allergic to cooking, worry not, you can bring catered food!).
The dress code, and this may baffle you, is “all white”. Last year, around 4.000 people attended the event in Bryant Park (photo)
