Imagine stepping inside a restaurant blanketed in darkness and being served a sublime three-course meal – the flavours and textures of which are intensified by your remaining senses. Sounds a little bit incredible, right?
An experience that’s been backed by psychologists as an ‘amplified’ way to enjoy food, the enticing ‘Dining In The Dark’ event is coming to Auckland in May this year so you can “see” for yourself.
This special event promises to “elevate your meal to a whole new level” with darkened surroundings – leaving just you, your taste buds and your sense of smell to enjoy a three-course meal served in a top-secret restaurant that’s yet to be announced. How mysterious!
Blindfolds will be provided to all guests (disposable for your safety, of course), which will help to heighten your senses but also help stop you from peeking at what’s on your plate.
Guests will be led into the darkened environment by a “guide” who’ll be on hand to make sure you don’t bump into anything on your way in.
‘Dining In The Dark’ has received some rave reviews from attendees who have experienced the event in cities around the world.
💬 Aishlea S. – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Fantastic and well thought experience. Really had to rely on other senses to get your way through the table and manage to carefully grab your wine without spilling. Food menu was well thought out… Waitress Georgia was fantastic. Had a great time and would recommend to all”
💬 Devon P. – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Fabulous from start to finish. Waiters were great and welcoming and then food was amazing! Definitely would recommend and can’t wait to come back!”
Auckland’s ‘Dining In The Dark’ events will take place on Wednesday evenings, starting on May 26. Tickets are $110 and are now on sale.
