Traditional Dinners are Boring.

Avital Dinners are Awesome.
We Design Interactive Food & Drink Experiences that Connect People Better.

We Totally Get It

Organizing an Awesome Experience Can Be Tough

  • So many event options to choose from, but nothing feels different or memorable. 
  • Companies that claim to be professionals, but leave you feeling lost and unimpressed. 
  • Searching for something authentic that everyone will love, but coming up short and feeling more disconnected.

Creating Connection Since 2011

I’m Avital, a certified wine and water sommelier (yes, that’s a thing) and self-proclaimed comparative food tasting aficionado. I started Avital in 2011 to highlight the incredible cuisine in my hometown of San Francisco. Since then we’ve expanded to over 12 cities across the U.S., hosting food tours and interactive private dining experiences designed for groups (although we still offer awesome public food tours for individuals and couples too)! Plus we host a curated collection of innovative virtual events.

Like the extraordinary Chef José Andrés, we believe in the power of food and know that sharing it is the ultimate way to connect. Whether you’re organizing an event for your colleagues and clients, or family and friends, our food and drink dining experiences create authentic settings to create memorable moments and connect. 

We’ve served over 100,000 happy guests for intimate birthday celebrations to large scale conferences. We can’t wait to eat, drink, and connect with you.
