You could be forgiven for thinking you’ve just stumbled upon a small cult when you see hundreds of people moving en masse to an undisclosed location, all dressed impeccably in white. In fact, this Parisian tradition of assembling in famous landmarks and setting up one communal picnic with candelabras, expensive china, silverware and wine glasses will, for the first time this year, hit New York on August 25th, after making its Quebec City debut. The inaugural Diner en Blanc in New York is limited to a thousand guests and the location will be held secret until the last minute. Launched with just a handful of friends by François Pasquier over 20 years ago, Paris’ Dîner en Blanc now assembles nearly 15,000 people each year.
