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 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 (we do, however, respond to complaints). Our motto is, "Why dine alone, when you can dine with new friends?"
We have 4-6 dinner events per month at upscale restaurants in Manhattan. Most attendees do *not* RSVP for our dinners on Meetup, but on The Single Gourmet website https://thesinglegourmet.net (https://thesinglegourmet.net/) and we usually have 20-30 people at each dinner. Members of this Meetup group 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 paid 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 you don't have to worry about how to split the bill or how much to tip. We also have a 45-60 minute social hour at the restaurant's bar before seating time (these drinks are not included included in the price of the dinner).
Our current membership fee $99 per year. This entitles you to dinners at the members-only price (generally $10 less than the prices listed here on Meetup), special dinners and 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.
