What is Just for Dinner?

Just for Dinner is a lifestyle event sponsored by The Group to create an opportunity for professionals in the lifestyle to meet in a more discreet and elegant setting. For those in the lifestyle who appreciate a slender ankle in a red-soled pump, the hand-stitched interior of a classic German automobile and a 2007 Insignia, this is for you. It also serves as the first step in becoming a member of The Group who provides its' members with access to private events, parties, and getaways throughout the world.

Dear Ann,

I just wanted to thank you for your response to after dinner drinks not being at the hotel.  It was classy and exactly what we were looking for.  We are knew to the lifestyle and enjoy the 'no pressure' of Just for Dinner.  

Hope we make the cut into the group.

Thank you,

George,

 

Despite mother nature trying to spoil our party, as usual you out did yourself and made another perfect dinner. First off, the venue was amazing, (I cannot wait to go back for dinner) the food and wine were better, but more importantly the guest list still took first place. It was a wonderful evening spent with great people from all over blending together to make it another special event. I am not sure how you continue to make every dinner special but keep up the good work. We cannot wait for the next one.

 

Fondest regards always

Combining each chef's seasonal tasting menu with the sommelier's best pairings, these five course experiences are discreet, elegant and leisurely. They are also a perfect way to meet other professional couples, like yourselves, who are in the lifestyle.

These Dinners are held at "Michelin-rated" 1, 2 and 3 star restaurants or may feature a "James Beard" chef with tasting menus with as many as 15-courses. The cost for these dining experiences will be higher than other dinners presented.

The "plus" Dinners include the option of a deluxe hotel room or suite and the opportunity to linger after dinner with friends, both old and new, without the need to dash home.

The "Aboard" Dinners are hosted on privately owned yachts, typically in excess of 90-feet. These gracious evenings afloat are limited in size based on the vessel's Coast Guard certification and typically fill immediately once announced.

A Personal Chef preparing a dinner in a unique private residence offers the most intimate of settings; however, the evening is still Just For Dinner.

In addition to meeting other local professionals in the lifestyle, these dinners may also provide a path to membership in The Group.
