Let us take you on a journey of the senses in one of the most unique dinners you will ever experience, featuring a delectable four-course menu.
Once blindfolded let your senses take over and you’ll enjoy the smells, the sounds, the tastes and the textures in a way you never thought possible.
The concept of purposefully eating in complete pitch-black dark originated with Jorge Spielmann, a blind clergyman from Zurich. When guests ate dinner at the Spielmann house some would wear blindfolds during their meal to show solidarity with their host and to better understand his world. What Spielmann’s sighted guests found was that the blindfolds heightened their sense of taste and smell and made their dining experience more enjoyable.
This unique dining concept opened as a restaurant in Switzerland called blindekuh (Blind Cow) and has expanded to restaurants in Paris, Moscow, Berlin, Prague, Hong Kong and more recently in New York and California. We are proud to have introduced the concept to Boston and New England in 2010, and even prouder of the rave reviews we’ve received since then.
This fall, we are delighted to partner with the Colonial Hall at Rockafellas in Salem to offer four special Dining in the Dark events just in time for Halloween.
