Dinner Gild

Dinners are back!

The Dinner Gild is planning to start slowly this year. We have dinners planned for roughly every other week through December (see below for the October meals). We plan on having a lower indoor capacity (about 60 people) with outdoor seating optional as well. We will have seating on the Moonlight Theater stage and outside the sliding glass doors of the Bratten Hall. These will be weather dependent and if the weather is not agreeable we will have take-out available for those diners.

Please let us know if you are interested in leading a dinner in the new year (plenty of time to plan) and if you are interested in doing any kind of volunteering at the dinners or with the Dinner Gild.

Dinners in October
October 16th: The Ardensingers serving Lasagna Rustica, Fagioli e verdure, Greens with Limone Agrumato, Foccacia, Cantuccini for dessert and Vin Santo
October 30th: Please join our celebration of Dia De Los Muertos by bringing a photo of a loved one for our ofrenda (Altar), along with a small tribute (favorite food, flowers, drink). Renata Brito-Cherrin, Bess Curley & Crew will be serving Dos salsas, Enmoladas Negro, Black beans, Seasonal squash, Elote, and Pan Dulce for dessert.

Reservations can be made via email to adgreservations@gmail.com or by calling 302 792 7139.
PLEASE NOTE: Reservations must be made by 6 pm the Sunday before at the latest (not Thursday as in the past).

  • Doors will open at 5:15 and dinner will be served at 6:00 pm. 
  • $12 for Members, $15 for non-members, $7 for children 
  • Sunday evening at 6 pm (today) is the cutoff for reservations for the following week. 
  • If you make a reservation please let us know if you’d prefer indoor or outdoor seating.   We realized that choosing “either” creates a problem if we sell out.   If there are extra outdoor tables when you get there you can change your mind
  • You can reach us for reservations/questions at: ADGreservations@gmail.com or 302-792-7139.  Please do not make reservations on the Facebook page. (Thank you Katie Donovan for taking on this task!!) 
  • Proof of Vaccination is required. 
  • Please stay masked until seated.
  • If you haven’t let us know and would like to be a permanent diner, email us at adgreservations@gmail.com or leave a message on 302 792-7139.
We hope to see you soon!

The Dinner Gild contributes to the strong sense of community among the residents of The Ardens, members of the Arden Club, and their guests, by providing opportunities to share wholesome, inexpensive meals in a neighborhood environment.  Bringing together our love of the arts, food, music, and most importantly, friendship.
