Ferran Adria Immersion Dinners

We are pleased to present a series of seven unique dining experiences in conjunction with our special exhibition Ferran Adria: The Invention of Food. Each meal serves as a one-of-a-kind homage to food innovator Adria, widely celebrated for changing the landscape of gastronomy in the same way Salvador Dalí changed art. These exclusive dining events feature singular, chef-inspired menus and wine pairings from Masciarelli Wine Company, designed to immerse you in the transformative nature of food. Seating is limited, reservations required. Please join us for one (or more) of these casually chic, elegant evenings.

If you are curious about what to wear, where to park, or anything else, please read the answers to some Frequently Asked Questions.
