Would You be Open to Dining in the Dark?

Paris restaurant Dans le Noir, opened in 2004 and was, at that time, one of a handful of restaurants around the globe that served their diners in total darkness.

The premise is that in the dark, your senses are more aware of the taste, smells and texture of the food ... your experience will therefore become more enjoyable.

The Dark Dining phenomena came to the United States via the restaurant Opaque.

Opaque has three locations; San Francisco, San Diego, and Santa Monica.
"Just imagine, that you can not see for an hour or two, that you are abandoning vision in exchange for a new, multi-sensual dining experience. Opaque is enhancing our senses of taste, smell, touch, and hearing by abandoning one that we often take for granted – this is “Dining in the Dark”."
You will be guided and served by visually-impaired or blind staff.

The meal consists of your choice of an appetizer, entrée and dessert, and costs $99.00, plus drinks.
