Imagine stepping inside a Winter-themed restaurant blanketed in darkness and being served a sublime three-course meal – the flavors and textures of which are intensified by your remaining senses. Sounds a little bit incredible, right?
An experience that’s been backed by psychologists as an ‘amplified’ way to enjoy food, the enticing ‘Dining In The Dark’ events are coming to Edmonton with an amazing twist for this frosted season! There are three incredible, unique cuisine options to fit all flavor profiles: vegan, seafood and meat, all complemented by delicious cocktails.
These special events promise to “elevate your meal to a whole new level” with darkened surroundings – leaving just you, your taste buds and your sense of smell to enjoy a three-course meal served in a magical location! These culinary experiences will take place at the Stanhope Eatery & Bar on January 26 (Winter menu), February 9, February 10 (Valentine’s Day menu) and March 23 (Spring menu).
Blindfolds will be provided to all guests (disposable for your safety, of course), which will help to heighten your senses but also help stop you from peaking at your plate.
Guests will be led into the darkened environment by a “guide” who’ll be on hand to make sure you don’t bump into anything on your way in.
‘Dining In The Dark’ has received some rave reviews from attendees who have experienced the event in cities around the world.
