On September 17th the culinary pop-up Dîner en Blanc returns for the 8th consecutive year to New York, which was the first U.S. city to host the event. This year will be the largest 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 under the stars. This year, renowned chef and Michelin star recipient restaurateur Marc Forgione will be curating four special picnic baskets for guests who order through Le Dîner en Blanc. That alone, made me sign up. There are three ticket release tiers you should be aware of. The first is for those who have already participated in Le Dîner en Blanc previously, and the second is for friends that have been “sponsored” by previous participants. The third tier is the waiting list tier. If there’s any space left it will be a first come first served, all up for grabs ticket frenzy. Lol I’m here for it.

 

For those who don’t know who Marc Forgione is and why it’s dope that he’s part of this this year, Forgione has been riding a wave of success since opening his restaurant Marc Forgione in 2008 and multiple locations of his modern steakhouse, American Cut. He won season 3 of Food Network’s “The Next Iron Chef” at just 31 years old, making him the youngest winner in the show’s history and is currently one of the Iron Chefs on Food Network’s “Iron Chef America.” His father Larry Forgione is a culinary legend who revolutionized American-style cooking in the '70s and '80s. So yeah, he’s kind of bad ass.

 

So pack an all white outfit or pick one up when you get to NYC. Find a friend that’s already been that can sponsor you or sign up now for the waitlist to be a part of this fun culinary adventure. You’ll meet other food enthusiasts and cool New Yorkers that will be doing the most with Kentucky derby-worthy hats and getups. It's totally an Insta-worthy event that only happens once a year.
