Don a blindfold and let us lead you into an environment created by innovative artist Dana Salisbury in collaboration with inspired chef Abigail Hitchcock. Wearing a specially designed blindfold, you are immersed in darkness; eyes open or closed, you experience the perfect blackout.
Each event is unique and features a different menu and artist/performers. Notice the unexpected. Let your remaining senses take over. Between courses, unexpectedly vivid performances will fill the room; the evening’s artists (as always, unannounced in advance) might include a tap dancer, a virtuosic vocalist. a flamenco dancer or a jazz guitarist. You might hear a baroque violin, South Indian percussion, Japanese flute, or . . .
Let the experience carry you to a romantic, intriguing innerspace.
Savor complex and delicious aromas wafting from the kitchen where chef Abigail Hitchcock is preparing a luxurious four course meal with fine wines. Challenge your palate to tease out the mysteries of the menu which will be announced at the evening's end.
"There was a hesitancy that was wonderful," says 31-year-old Jonathan M. "Paying attention to the way the hand slowly met the glass, the way the food slowly took on shape and identity in the mouth. It was such a wonderful exercise in being in the moment."
