Of course “Dining in the Dark” is a European concept, so chic! Berlin native Benjamin Uphues first introduced this concept to the U.S. in Southern California, so Hollywood! Now the restaurant is branching out to San Francisco and the W Hotel in San Diego.
What makes this experience so full of darkness? You will receive a three-course meal selected from a special menu that is prepared by a local celebrity chef, while seated in a pitch-black dinning room.
The owner feels that dinning in pitch-black darkness forces sighted diners to rely on their other senses; touch, taste, smell, and hearing; which makes for an intense dining experience. Wait, I almost forgot the best part! A team of Blind individuals, trained to serve in total darkness will be taking care of your every need during the dark dinning experience.
So just close your eyes and eat!
