A New Orleans Supper Club Lands in DC

You’re sitting on a helipad. You’re talking to a total stranger. And you’re about to eat your fifth course of duck.

No, this isn’t a deleted scene from Inception.

It’s your future. Or one possible future, anyway.

At least if you see fit to join Dinner Lab, a members-only outfit that puts on experimental dinners in unexpected and undisclosed locations around the city, taking sign-ups now for its DC launch.

Here’s what you need to know about this thing...

They’re only taking 300 members. But if you’re one of them, you’ll have access to five to eight dinners per month, once they get fully ramped up early next year. And you can bring a guest each time.

It started in New Orleans. So they take food seriously. And nothing is off-limits. Their chefs have done things like a “Swamp to Table” dinner with frog, alligator and catfish on the menu, and five courses of duck.

When you sign up for a dinner, you won’t know where the hell it is. Yeah, you’re on a need-to-know basis until they tip you off with the location. But they put some thought into it. Think helipads, motorcycle dealerships and roofs of abandoned buildings.

We’re pretty sure they get permission first.
