Imagine stepping inside a 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’ event is coming to Denver this October so you can find out yourself.
This special event promises 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 Upper Larimer
Blindfolds will be provided to all guests, and they’ll 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. The blindfold will not only help to heighten your senses, but also help stop you from peaking at what’s on your plate. What’s on your plate, though, will depend on which type of menu you choose, vegetarian, pescatarian, or carnivorous. Each come with an expertly made starter and a dessert item to end the meal with a satisfying sweet.
For the menu, the food will be catered by House & Howell and the bar menu by Avant-Garde. The venue for this unique event will be held in Upper Larimer, which just opened in the Denver Market, and is a recently renovated, classic style 20th-century ballroom.
‘Dining In The Dark’ has received some rave reviews from attendees who have experienced the event in cities around the world.
