A dinner with a difference

Introducing an experiential dining concept called It’s A Dinner, created by former goop food director Ana Hito. The fully sustainable Hamptons-based premise highlights seasonal produce and local purveyors. Upon arrival, guests explore the Foster Farm in Sagaponack before tucking into a five-course meal of fresh fare, cooked by Hito herself. Furthermore, everything is shoppable—from the plates to the pasta!—via QR codes in a physical magazine given to each attendee. It’s a Dinner has already partnered with the likes of Traeger Grills, Hawkins, House Beer, Plant Paper, Super Goop, True Botanicals, Frank & Eileen, and more. The first summer series will take place this weekend—August 14, 15, and 16—with the next set of dinners stated to take place in September and October.
