Social dining experiences can be organized by individuals, creating a relaxed and inclusive atmosphere, where everyone feels encouraged to participate and engage in conversation.

The hope is that by sharing a meal together, strangers can find common ground, discover shared interests, and potentially form new friendships or professional connections. These events can be particularly beneficial for individuals who are new to a city or community, as they provide an opportunity to meet new people usually from the same nationalities that may never have an opportunity to encounter one another and expand their social network.
