The Dining by Design Experience
The key premise behind DIFFA's Dining by Design events is that designers first imagine then realize an unforgettable dining experience for guests, who purchase tickets to either a cocktail preview or the entertaining and exclusive charity gala, featuring a full-course meal prepared, of course, by the most country's most talented culinary artists. For those interested in the city's social scene, Dining by Design is the place to be. For those of us always on the look out for design inspiration, Dining by Design makes you look at your dining room's potential in a whole new way.
