Dine in the Dark (Dans Le Noir)

Only a stone throw away from the Nathional Institute for the blind nothing can prepare you for the unique sensory experience that is Dans Le Noir. It works like this; you sign in at the waiting area, put all phones and anything else that might emit light in a locker, then you select a coloured menu that corresponds with a surprise. The content of menu will only be revealed at the end of the night. Following storing of items in lockers you will be introduced to your host for the evening who will lead your guest(s) through three sets of velvet drapes to your table in a dark room. You literally can’t see anything. Leaving you to rely wholly on the remaining four senses and the blind host assigned to you. You’ve never tasted food like this before, that’s for sure. And because you can’t see who’s next to you, everyday judgments and fears are removed and touching your neighbours becomes irresistible. Dans Le Noir is a memorable, pleasant and unforgettable experience that everyone should try at least once. The chefs constantly update the menus in order to keep the experience fresh and therefore repeat dinners will be permitted to broaden their taste horizons by trying a variety of other surprise menus.
