Dinner in White


The 25th annual “Dinner in White,” or “Le Diner en Blanc,” was held on Trocadero square in front of the Eiffel Tower on June 13, 2013. The gathering, which is invitation-only, is one of Paris’s best kept secrets. The location is kept secret until the last minute in order to outwit authorities. Participants dine on home-cooked meals and champagne. “Le Diner en Blanc” began a quarter century ago when a group of ten friends, with a desire to eat dinner at a forbidden spot in Paris, ended up dining as a 200-person flash mob at the Jardins de Bagatelle, the former playground of French royals including Marie Antoinette.
