Why You Should Dine in the Dark

Why would you want to eat in the dark? There are many reasons apart from the novelty factor. Mainly people want to try it because it is a unique culinary experience. Food tastes very different without visual cues to pair with it. It heightens the senses of taste and smell. Food can be savored more. It is a new way to appreciate the taste of food. We eat with our eyes much than we realize. What we see flavors the taste in a large way. This is why many companies conduct blind taste tests. Consumers buy based on the visual appearance more than the taste. Without being able to see the food, taste becomes the most relevant sense, as it logically should be when it comes to eating.

Dark dining also gives you an appreciation of your vision. After being without your eyesight and trying to perform simple tasks, you will value your senses more. You will be more aware of what each of our senses does for us. Your perspective will be broadened.

Eating in the dark enhances the imagination. You must use your mind to envision what the food on your plate looks like. If you don’t know what the food is, you must use your mind and imagination to guess what the food is. In a sense, your imagination becomes your eyesight. You are eating whatever picture of the food your mind creates.

Meals are one of the top bonding times for people. What better bonding experience could there be than sharing a meal with someone in the dark? You will be enjoying not only food but the entertainment of the situation. It is a great group exercise and a way to get to know the people who are eating with you. Barriers will be lower because everyone will have to concentrate more on the physical aspect of eating.

There are no refunds. Please be sure before you book. We hope to celebrate with you!
