diner en blanc

Top secret dinner event sets Echo Beach aglow

Diner en Blanc returned to Toronto for a fourth year, sending Toronto food hounds and adventure-lovers on their annual voyage to...someplace secret. The annual food event, which originated decades ago in Paris, requires diners to dress in all-white outfits, bring their own folding table and chairs, and be ready to head to an undisclosed location - which they'll only be let in on hours before the event.

This year's final destination: Echo Beach, where 1,500 diners descended on a paved pavilion by the water to enjoy dinner and drinks, take in some live entertainment (including ballet, bands and DJs) and dance late into the night.

Check out all the action in our photo gallery from the event.
