Letter From Our President

Dear Dames,

SummerDine… and the living is easy.

I am writing to encourage all Dames (along with your friends and family) to fill your souls as well as your stomachs by participating in Les Dames d'Escoffier New York's fantastic new Scholarship Fundraising initiative newly launched this summer.

The promotion -- available for dinners on August 6th and 13th -- highlights the best of summer dining and the season's bounty with offerings that exceed those of Restaurant Week!

A select number of New York's finest restaurants have donated some wonderful dinners and special experiences to LDNY. Donations of special wines, along with tax and gratuities are offered as part of the package.
