about dine with dignitaries

In 2004, the Honorary Consul of Chile in Las Vegas and the President of the Nevada Committee on Foreign Relations began inviting to dinner dignitaries who were visiting Las Vegas.

Often in connection with diplomatic missions, speaking engagements or business travel, many came to Las Vegas, the meeting place of the world.  Groups of friends began to take part, and Dine With Dignitaries was born.  

Determined to keep the gatherings always small enough so that all parties could converse with each other on a single evening, and to make certain that all participants dined at the table of the visiting dignitary, the maximum table size was set, and remains 50 seats.

Since inception, the gatherings have enjoyed wonderful patronage of dignitaries from the far corners of the Earth: 

  • Kalume Mukadi, Prince Dah Vignon of Abomey, Benin
  • Sarah Culberson, Princess Bumpenya (Mende), Sierra Leone
  • H.E. Andrés Bianchi, Ambassador of Chile to the United States

An extraordinary chapter begins as the legend continues.

During one of the most spectacular dining weeks we have experienced, the Honorary Consul of Austria in Guadalajara, Mexico arranged for a series of dinners, catered first class at the most famous landmarks around the city. 

The experience of dining with dignitaries at spectacular and unusual venues was unforgettable, and showcased incredible catering ability to adapt to environs.  It was simply amazing.  This in part inspired the direction we have now taken.

Dine with dignitaries is adding another enticing feature to some of the most fascinating dinner conversation on the planet:  Caterers Showcase

Caterers Showcase dislodges some of our dining experiences from the traditional restaurant environment, allowing for the Dine With Dignitaries experience to take place in unusual, often spectacular locations and venues.  We invite professional gourmet caterers to compete in occasional events.  Participants may vote to award the best caterer each year.
