Secret Florida Dinner Club Arranges Cemetery Dinner and More


Cemetery food: a dessert assortment of Charlotte Russe, Choux a la Creme, Almond Meringue, Tarte aux Pommes, and Citrus Marzipan.

Imagine buying tickets for an event that you know absolutely nothing about. The day of the event, you receive an email with a meeting location and suggestions for attire. You could be secreted away to a private museum for a dinner and a show with the dancers from the Florida Ballet. Or you could be whisked in horse-drawn carriages to a nearby cemetery for a night of live music and gourmet dishes by moonlight. This is the Legend Dinner Series: an underground dinner club in Jacksonville, Fla., where events are always lavish but kept secret until the last minute.

"The Legends Series is more than just a series of dinners... it's a series of culinary and sensory experiences,” said chef Tom Gray of Moxie Kitchen + Cocktails, who has been supervising the team of chefs for each of the events. “It’s always changing, it’s a logistical puzzle, and there are really high expectations to live up to. We strive to deliver something to each of the attendees that is equivalent to a once-in-a lifetime experience.”

So far there have been eight Legend dinner series for the food-lovers and adventurers of the Jacksonville area. The first dinner was in 2012, at which diners sat at a long table at an Ale House, and Philip Pan, concertmaster of the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra, composed a violin piece inspired by each course. The next Legend dinner will take place on Saturday, November 8. The details are, of course, being held secret, but tickets are $375 per person and the event will involve all-day entertainment culminating in a seven-course dinner prepared by chef Craig Richards from Atlanta’s St. Cecilia, as well as a surprise guest chef.
