Personally if the dinner is just a culinary adventure, I'd go in a blazer, no tie and have fun. If the dinner is a more formal occassion like a business event, personal milestone event, I'd go with the suit.
Thank you! Sometimes these threads where someone asks what to wear to an event get under my skin. Wear what you are comfortable in, for God sake, just respect the situation. Your first instinct is probably right. Go with it. Don't do what someone else would do. I think people on this forum often worry too much about the details of how they are dressed and miss out on all the other aspects of the occasion - in this case one of the best dining experiences you are likely to have.
