What do I get with my Dinner Lab membership and what's the cost?
Each member is granted access to the Dinner Lab website that shows the upcoming events happening in all of our markets. Members can purchase tickets to any of our seated dinner events or happy hours with availability in any city in which we operate. With a single membership you can purchase two event tickets at the member price and up to an additional four tickets at the non-member price. Membership fees are determined based upon your local market and your membership plan, but currently range from $100-$200 per person per year. Tickets for individual events are purchased separately.
How do the events work and how much are event tickets?
Event tickets are purchased online in advance of the meal through our website. Once a ticket is purchased to an event, guests need only bring themselves and good conversation. There is no cash/card exchanged at our events. We do this so that you can focus on what you do best - meeting and eating. Meals range from sit down dinners to more of a happy hour / party atmosphere. We provide the staff, bartenders, and hostesses so all you need to do is show up and enjoy yourself. Event prices vary based upon the number of courses, the complexity of the cuisine, and local market conditions, but typically range from between $50 to $95 per person for members and include a minimum of 5+ courses and all booze, tax and gratuity.
When are events and how often do you do them?
Our seated dinner events are typically held on Thursday, Friday and/or Saturday nights and will often times offer an additional happy hour portion. To try and accommodate for our members' varied schedules, we generally offer multiple seating times for each of our events, and you can select your preferred seating time on the website prior to buying tickets. Our events last between two and three hours including dinner service and some pre-dinner cocktails, and we'll host at least one event per week per market unless we're on a break.
How do you release new events?
All members are notified of new event postings every Wednesday or Thursday (depending on your market) and have the opportunity to purchase tickets to events that they want to go to. We try to release events a few weeks out . . . . we know it's hard to get babysitters and cancel your other less awesome plans.

Read all about it
Some people say Clark Kent was Superman. We think that's ridiculous propaganda. Chef Chris Bailey is a real life journalism grad by day, but when the red phone rings, off comes the skinny tie and on goes the chef whites. The arti-choker stands no chance against this Le Cordon Bleu grad and neither do the competitors. We won't be surprised when his East Asian menu makes you want to tie yourself to the train tracks just so you can see this hunky chef again.
