Looking to add a little twist to your dinner plans? We’ve got just the ticket – literally: tickets to London’s coveted Dining in the Dark experience! Taking place on April 10 in the heart of London, the experience will add a whole new dimension to your meal.
It is said that 80% of people eat with their eyes. Well, not here! Dining in the Dark will take over Quaglino’s Mayfair, shrouding the restaurant area in darkness for a tantalising 90-minute experience. You’ll have a blindfold on hand to stop you peeping at your plate, and only be able to rely on your senses of smell and taste to distinguish what is on your dish.
At the experience, you’ll feast on satisfying starters, filling mains and lip-smacking desserts; fixed menus suitable for meat eaters, seafood fiends and vegan diners. Without your eyes to spy what ingredients make up your dishes, you’ll need to use your other senses to explore the varying textures, smells and tastes – Dining in the Dark has actually been backed by psychologists as an ‘amplified’ way to enjoy food. While you’ll be unable to select exactly what’s on your plate, allergies and dietary requirements will be catered for.
Dining in the Dark makes for a perfect evening out with your pals, or alternatively gives a brand-new meaning to ‘blind date’. The experience promises to “elevate your meal to a whole new level”, so you can expect an evening of surprises.
