When British socialite Tamsin Lonsdale invited me to join a dinner for The Supper Club—the roving private dining club she runs branches of in New York and London and has recently imported in L.A. and whom I’ve written about before—I took pause. Maybe it was the concept of breaking bread with strangers that didn’t exactly appeal to me. But, when I learned that the 21 strangers would include a Scottish singer-songwriter (Darius Danesh), a famous actress (Natasha Henstridge), a renowned party planner (Lulu Powers), a pro volleyball player (Amanda Kamm), a young heiress (Jennifer Missoni) and an artist whose work I love (Ryan Heshka), my arm was sufficiently twisted. Above, a still from Wednesday night’s event, held at Cecconi’s restaurant in West Hollywood.
