See Food: Diner en Blanc Chicago

By Anthony Todd in Food on Aug 30, 2011 3:00PM

We broke the story of the first "Diner en Blanc" in Chicago, and we followed the controversy over the rights to the name - frankly, we were worried whether something would stop the inaugural event. Nothing did, and the white pop-up dinner came off without a hitch last Saturday evening. The secret location? Daley plaza. With the spectacular backdrop of the famous Picasso, diners assembled, dined, twirled napkins and generally had a wonderful, stylish time. If you didn't get to go, take a look at some of the photos - and don't worry. Organizers are already planning next year's event. Follow on Facebook for more information.
