Dallas foodies will soon be able to experience "Dining in the Dark."
Opaque is bringing Dining in the Dark to the Aloft Hotel in Dallas on April 13-14, 2012.
According to Opaque's website, eating in the dark is meant to take diners into "world of sensitivity you have never experienced before" by having diners eat in a pitch-black room, forcing them to use their senses of smell, hearing, taste, and touch.
Specially trained blind or otherwise visually impaired people act as guide and server in a pitch-black dining room. Opaque also hosts Dining in the Dark in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
A four course prix fixe meal will be prepared chefs from the Aloft Hotel. The menu is a mystery right now, but a vegetarian/vegan menu is available upon request. A standard ticket costs $99, but VIPs can get a surprise signature cocktail added to the meal for a total cost of $109.
