Diner en Blanc

At Sunny's house party on a fall night, a few people mentioned an "all white dinner" and I hadn't heard about this. Sunny mentioned it was "Diner en Blanc" and he had an extra ticket, so invited me. I didn't know much other than the party took place at a secret location, you had to dress up in white and you had to bring food. Sounded like my kind of party!

As with all of my recent trips, I had no clue where I was staying but I had booked my restaurants well out in advance. I found DiverXO by doing a search on Top Restaurants in Madrid on Google (very precise methodology). David Munoz, the chef, worked in Spanish restaurants Balzac and Viridiana, and abroad at places such as Nobu. His restaurant in Madrid isn't traditional Spanish cuisine, rather, he claims it is the product of many influences, and I was really impressed and enjoyed the unique experience.
