This meetup group is for people who would like to explore New York’s “fine dining.” The dinners range from $80 to over $300, depending on what you order. Tip and tax add 30% to your individual bill. We mostly do tasting menus, and some people prefer wine pairings as well.

Please sign up for a meetup only if you are willing to make the same commitment to the group as if it were a date with friends or family. The group size is either 4 to 6 or sometimes up to 8 people. Reservations in a fine dining restaurant cannot always be changed easily or be adjusted to a smaller table on a short notice. Also the organizer is always required to hold the reservation with a credit card. Members who reserve a spot, hold the reservation for weeks and cancel close to the date for a second time will be removed.

This meetup group requires to post a headshot and to use your real first name, as this is a very friendly and personal group.

Restaurants we visited include i.e. Dovetail, Morimoto, Corton, Blue Hill, Eleven Madison Park.

Cell phone policy: If you have to make a phone call, please do it before or after the dinner. Otherwise, please leave your device in your bag and NOT on the table.

Since the Meetup subscription is not free, I am charging $2 or $3 per person per dinner to recoup the costs. I am not making a profit.

We're 75 sophisticated diners
