What is Dinner Lab?

Dinner Lab is a membership-based social dining experiment that unites undiscovered chefs with adventurous diners who are looking for something different from the traditional restaurant experience. Our events bring together a group of interesting strangers around a common table to share cuisine crafted by up-and-coming chefs from all over the country. We don’t dictate what our chefs cook, but instead give them a platform to tell a story through their menus – recipes that speak to their background or heritage, ingredients they are passionate about, or completely new dishes they’ve been experimenting with on days away from the restaurant.

Our platform flips the traditional restaurant experience on its head by putting chefs at the center stage and giving our members a voice in the process. Each time they attend an event, members give feedback to our chefs that they can use to iterate and improve on their menu concept. Through Dinner Lab, chefs have the ability to prototype new dishes and tweak recipes across our network of engaged food lovers throughout the country to help them create the next great restaurant concept.

Whether it happens on the roof of an abandoned building, the floor of a paper mill, or inside a motorcycle dealership, we believe that good people, good food and good drink are the only elements necessary for a memorable meal. Our member community comes from various ages and backgrounds, but each one shares a desire to expand their culinary horizons in a new and interesting way with an eclectic group of other food lovers, all while helping facilitate the growth of some amazing chefs.
