“We are thrilled to be back in Los Angeles for the fourth time to honor this tradition of community and culinary excellence,” said Annette Dalloo, co-host of Le Dîner en Blanc – Los Angeles. “With the tremendous success of last year’s event, we could not be more excited to continue our relationship with Patina Catering. Their expertise and years of experience elevate Le Dîner en Blanc Los Angeles to new heights,” said Dalloo.

Bystanders will witness groups of guests all dressed in white gathering at various locations across the city. Guided by Dîner en Blanc volunteers, these groups will then converge on one of the city’s most beautiful settings. Every guest brings their own table, chairs and table setting and can bring their own gourmet feast or order from one of Patina Caterings picnic baskets, curated exclusively for Le Dîner en Blanc Los Angeles 2017. The evening is filled with visually breathtaking moments including the traditional napkin twirl to mark the beginning of the dinner and the light show to let guests know they are now free to mingle and dance. At the end of the evening, guests will pack up all of their belongings, pick up all their litter and head back into the night, leaving behind no sign of their elegant revelry.
