'Dark Dining' Comes to New York

If your clients are bored with Le Cirque, are already recognized at Per Se and have been to Momofuku Ko's more than twice, here's a fun new dining option in New York: City website Gothamist is reporting that Dining in the Dark is coming to The Breslin for a limited-time engagement next month, letting guests taste, touch, smell and (hey, it's possible!) hear their food...but not see it.

Courtesy of Opaque, diners are lead into a completely dark dining room and guided through the evening by a server who is blind or visually impaired. The group is reportedly planning a five-course meal with chef April Bloomfield, with vegetarian options available.

Opaque will be taking over the Breslin's dining room September 25-22, with tickets going for $149-$159. Email [email protected] or call 646-480-7674 to reserve a spot.
