Diner en Blanc: Chicago

Cool whites, warm people and dazzling food.  2013 Diner en Blanc was a pure delight. If you have not had the chance to attend, mark your calendars for 2014. Be sure to spy your favorite whites now planning in advance, with full permission to push the limits. White wig, hats, dress and even your white pooch are welcome.

With much anticipation, the 25th Anniversary of Diner en Blanc revealed the secret location spot to the attendees just moments before the event got underway. With just over 1,000 diners this year, the event was sophisticated and elegant with a placeholder under the Wrigley building.

The festivities kicked off at 7:30pm with the traditional napkin twirl. The scene was complete with jugglers, and ribbon twirlers entertaining the diners as the first sips of bubbly were taken.

Now lets talk about the amazing food.  With an entire menu to choose from created by Stephan Outrequin and Nicole Quaisser of the LM Restaurant Group - LM Bistro, Brassiere by LM, Troquet, guest were treated to delicious picnic cuisine complete with recommended wine pairings.  

As new friends were made, and the last bite of food was eaten, Diner en blanc came to a close with a twinkling nights end, each guest waving a sparkler to complete the festivities.
