Le Diner En Blanc Comes to Mumbai!
Wednesday, 21 May 2014 10:40

Forks, it’s time to bring out your best white ensemble. The famous international Le Diner En Blanc is coming to Mumbai!

Started in Paris 25 years ago, these beautifully orchestrated dinners (see video here), reveal the secret location – a public place - of the dinner to guests at the very last minute. What you’ll see is thousands of people wearing white assembling in a public place for what they call a “mass chic picnic”.

The rules are very specific: guests have to carry their own white table, folding chairs, cutlery and food. Considering the white dress code, we suggest a bib as well. Sites across the world that have hosted these have included the Eifel Tower, grounds of the Louvre and Château de Versailles in Paris; Bryant Park in New York.

While there are no dates for the Mumbai dinner yet, there’s a registration page for Mumbai dinner guests up on their website where you can put in your details. We only hope permissions and licenses don’t play spoil sport in our city.

So sign up and wait for your white knight + dinner.

Getting there: Register on and visit the Facebook page here.
