What we're about

The Single Gourmet™ is a paid members-only social club for singles in NYC. Founded in 1982, currently most of our members are foodies over the age of 55 who are also single. The photo shown here is of actual members at one of our events.

We have 4-6 dinner events per month at upscale restaurants in Manhattan. Most attendees do *not* sign up of our dinners on this Meetup page, but on our website ( https://thesinglegourmet.net ); we usually have 20-30 people at each dinner. Non-member guests are welcome to come to one dinner as a non-member to see if The Single Gourmet to see if they are a good fit for the group, after which membership is required to attend more dinners.

Our dinners feature prix fixe menus with 3-course meals, with a glass of wine and coffee/tea. The prices include tax & tip, so no worrying about how to split the bill or how much to tip. We also have a 45 minute mix-and-mingle cash bar at the restaurant beforehand (these drinks are not included included in the price of the dinner).

Annual Membership Fee
Our current membership fee $99 per year. This entitles you to dinners at the members-only price, special events, and the opportunity to travel with the group, all of which you will learn about in a monthly emailed newsletter. Most recently we went on an amazing trip to Iceland, and trips to Santa Fe, Toronto, Croatia, and Cuba are being planned.

We are not a matchmaking service or a dating group; please do not come to our events expecting romance. However, we do not police the interactions between our members (unless there are complaints). Our motto is, "Why dine alone, when you can dine with new friends?"

Passover celebration at Lattanzi (Roman Jewish) -- ALL ARE WELCOME

To celebrate Passover, we will dine at Lattanzi, a new (to The Single Gourmet) restaurant featuring "Roman Jewish" food, on Wednesday, April 24 at 7:00 PM with optional drinks at 6:15 PM. Located in the theater district on W 46th St between 8th & 9th Ave, Lattanzi serves authentic Italian cuisine that is difficult to find elsewhere. NOTE: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE JEWISH TO ATTEND THIS DINNER. In fact, the Passover Seder is a celebration to which Jewish and non-Jewish people alike are invited to share in the story of the liberation of the Jewish people from slavery in ancient Egypt, and discuss common themes of peace, freedom, and religious tolerance. This will not be an actual Seder meal, but a meal where longtime Single Gourmet member Marilyn Schulder has graciously offered to lead us in -- according to her -- only the most fun parts of the seder! Her friend and also longtime member Lyle Perlmutter will also assist. You can see the menu and pay for this event securely with your credit card at: https://thesinglegourmet.net/shop/kellari-2019-04-21-guest-price The cost of this dinner is $98 which includes 3 courses, 1 glass of wine or soft drink, coffee/tea, tax & tip. The cost of a dinner or brunch is generally $10 less for paid members of The Single Gourmet (for this dinner if you are a paid member, the discounted price is $88 with early payment). Events in this Meetup group are organized by The Single Gourmet (https://thesinglegourmet.net), a paid membership group of foodies who are single and (mostly) over 55. We have 15-25 people at each event and payment in advance is *required* -- I base the reservation with the restaurant on the number of attendees who have prepaid. The annual membership dues are $99, which you can purchase at https://thesinglegourmet.net/shop/annual-membership/ and will entitle you to discounted dinners, special events, and also the opportunity to travel with the group. Most recently we went on an amazing 7-day trip to Iceland! Coming up we are planning trips to Toronto, Albuquerque/Santa Fe, Croatia, Spain, and Cuba for New Year's Eve! If you become a dues-paying member of The Single Gourmet within 30 days of attending a meal as a guest, you will get a $10 discount toward your next dinner. If you join within 7 days of attending a dinner, you will receive an additional $10 discount toward another dinner. REFUND POLICY: Due to restaurant deposit and guarantee requirements, cancellations for dinners are accepted up to ONE WEEK prior to the event. If you cancel 4-6 days prior, you will receive a credit toward a future event, but there will be no refunds for cancellations made 0-3 days before dinners.
