    Socialite Tamsin Lonsdale’s Supper Club Probably Doesn’t Want YouWhile the Post ran a story yesterday focusing on Homeslice West’s secret dinners in Upper West Side apartments, the dinner-club scene is going to get a lot glitzier when Brit socialite Tamsin Lonsdale brings her London “supper club” to New York. Ahead of a launch party later this month, Lonsdale has already held recruiting dinners at Indochine, La Esquina, and Gemma — with more planned at Palma and the new Cantina. At the dinners, current members have entertained friends who might be willing to pay a $750 fee to be invited to what a spokesman (yes, a dinner club has hired a PR firm) tells us will eventually be twelve events a month (some of them requiring purchase of additional tickets).

[Eater] Yeah, there’s some good food to be had in London, but the city’s still not there yet. [NYT] Related: Has the Food Over There Really Become Edible? [NYM]
