Award-winning D.C. chef and restaurateur Mike Isabella has been selected to create and assemble six unique picnic basket options for Diner en Blanc guests to choose from. Isabella developed each menu to satisfy 4,500 palettes and meet all types of dietary restrictions including gluten-free and vegetarian options. Isabella used influences and ingredients from his 10 restaurant concepts, which feature French, Italian, Spanish, Asian, Mexican, Moroccan, and Mediterranean cuisines. Each picnic is a dinner for two and is served in a reusable, insulated, white Diner en Blanc logo'd tote. The below sections are available for preorder only through the Member's eStore until 5:00pm on Monday, August 21.
