A Dining in the Dark Experience
Recently, I wrote an article titled “Dining In The Dark,” published in the July 2016 issue of Cataract and Refractive Surgery Today. In this article, I wrote about my experience at Camaje, a restaurant in Manhattan, which offers individual dining in the dark nights. I dined with George Saunders, MEA CFO, Sebastian Lesniak, MD, MEA Cornea Specialist, and his wife Agnes Lesniak, RN.
To explain the concept of Dining in the Dark, here is an excerpt from the article,
“Imagine abandoning your vision, just for 2 or 3 hours, in exchange for a new, more stimulating dining experience known as “Dining in the Dark.” Either the experience takes place in a completely dark restaurant, where customers cannot see the food they are eating, or the diners are given blindfolds that totally block out light at the start of the event. Removing visual stimuli heightens the senses of smell, taste, touch, and hearing, allowing for a new and unique dining experience. With Dining in the Dark, guests are seated in a pitch-black dining room or are guided into the restaurant after being blindfolded.”
