Dining In The Dark is a foodie experience like no other and the enigmatic event, where diners sit blindfolded in a dimly-lit restaurant to eat their three-course meal, is returning to Melbourne for more sensational dinners. Dare to find out how good your food can taste.
The experience has been backed by psychologists as an ‘amplified’ way to enjoy food as your sense of taste will become heightened by your loss of sight. Sounds a little bit incredible, right?
Although you might struggle at first with the cutlery, it is said that the flavours and textures of what you will be eating will seem to have been dialled up a notch or two. What’s sweet will be sweeter, what’s sour will be more sour and the combination of each and every facet on your plate will pop in your mouth.
Guests will be led into the barely-lit space by a guide who’ll be on hand to make sure you don’t bump into anything on your way in and blindfolds will be provided to all guests, which will help to heighten your senses. They also help stop you from peeking at what’s on your plate and ruin the experience.
Guests do have the option of choosing from a meat, seafood or vegan set menu prior to the event to ensure that they don’t eat something they don’t want to. However, that’s pretty much all the information you get about your meal. Besides, any more and the experience just wouldn’t be the same.
Dining In The Dark has received rave reviews from attendees who have experienced the event.
💬 Aishlea S. – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Fantastic 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… 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!”
Melbourne’s Dining In The Dark event nights will take place on select Wednesdays with sittings at 6pm and 8:30pm.
