Dîner en Blanc, the world’s most exclusive gourmet dinner, returns to NYC for the 8th consecutive year for an evening at one of the city’s most iconic public spaces.

Traditionally, the secret location is only revealed 1 hour before the event, which occurs on September 17 this year, making the all-white event even more intriguing. Great Performances is honored to be a part of this exclusive culinary event for the 3rd time since its touchdown in NYC and we are excited to partner with Iron Chef and Michelin Star recipient, Marc Forgione, on the special picnic menus for guests. Here is a sneak peek at this year’s NYC menu offerings, which can be purchased on the e-store and retrieved at the secret location. To learn more about the event, visit their website.
