Please note that this event is for members who have been fully vaccinated. 

Since 1956 Forlini’s has been serving up authentic Italian dishes on Baxter Street.  It is the only Italian restaurant that survived below Canal Street as Chinatown grew.  Join us for a delicious group dinner in their outdoor covered dining area. Following dinner you can hang out at the bar or stroll through Little Italy on Mulberry Street for dessert.

How it works:

  • Meet the group at the bar for cocktails between 6:30-7pm (inside)
  • At 7pm the group will be seated in the outdoor dining area.
  • Pay for what you eat and drink (separate checks).
  • We will be careful to seat everyone to spread out gender and ages.
  • Following dinner you may walk over to the Mulberry Street for dessert and coffee or you may stay at the bar at Forlini’s.
  • Since so many separate checks is a hassle, a 20%  gratuity will be added to the check.
