Chicago in White is a fresh and hyperlocal interpretation of the all-white flash dining trend, now in its third year! Attendees of this “refined foodie flash mob” meet at pre-assigned Harmonization Points throughout the city, where the event’s secret location is revealed. Guests will then converge on the location with their own elegant china, silverware, glasses, white napkins, plus food.

Our History

As "Chicago in White" 1,600 guests joined us on the South Drive of the Merchandise Mart, along the banks of the Chicago River.

Chicago Social Like the other 1,600 guests lucky enough to snag a ticket to the second annual Chicago in White pop-up dinner we had no idea where it would be prior…It was the perfect time of the day right as the sun was settling.


Zagat A mass migration into the city began seconds after the location was revealed: Merchandise Mart. It was an elegant evening of eclectic epicuriosity set against the city of Chicago.

Under the name "Diner en Blanc Chicago" we hosted 1,000 guests at Daley Plaza

Chicagoist We broke the story of the first white dinner in Chicago, and we followed the controversy over the rights to the name - frankly, we were worried whether something would stop the inaugural event. Nothing did, and the white pop-up dinner came off without a hitch last Saturday evening.

Daily Candy On August 27, at 7pm., rain or shine, 1,000 people will show up at a location disclosed a mere hour before… One of those people could be you.

Urban Daddy  “7 in ’11 - Everything That Was Important in 2011” #3 on List! It was a modest proposal. Just show up under the Picasso wearing all white… Your irrepressible suaveness was part of the biggest flash mob picnic with a dress code this city’s ever seen.

Grub Street  All the organizers wanted to do was hold a flash event… So many people tried to score spots that the website crashed. Organizers pointed out that issues were caused by nearly 2000+ refreshes per minute prior to Noon.
