What we're about

Fine Diners Over 40™ organizes members-only dinner clubs for singles and couples in New York and Seattle. Our group is about food as art, as cultural adventure, as scientific experiment, and best of all—food as an opportunity to take pleasure in the company of others. We enjoy dining at highly-rated restaurants and sharing the experience with fellow foodies.
