I first heard about this when Chef Ramsay took the winners of a challenge to dine in the dark. Sounds like a good premise, but I wouldn't like it. I would be too afraid something would crawl/fly into my food. Plus, you can't see what you are doing and you will probably end up making a big mess (and maybe knocking over your drink).

How about I just have the lights on and close my eyes when I am about to take a bite?

I'm getting excited about this. A wonderful person just offered to loan me their night vision goggles!

Not sure what I will be serving, yet!

I had to went to restaurant where you dined in the dark. Was fairly entertaining. Would only do it once though, it was messy as hell.

Hmm...

I'm not sure I could trust myself to sit on a darkened room and calmly eat with that many unsuspecting people around.

It's not an option for home. I'd go for another bite only to discover that my plate is empty. And all I'd hear is the sound of little burps all around me.

Give thanks to Mother Earth for Her greatest gift...

...gravity.

For without it, we would be lost.

I may try it one of these days, but looking at the menu and seeing everything cost $99 kind of makes me wary. Plus, only the salad and dessert is vegetarian.

Did you write the book of love, and do you have faith in God above,
If the Bible tells you so? Do you believe in rock Ân roll,
Can music save your mortal soul, And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

I need food ideas!

I want to serve some unusual finger foods and appetizers, a soup, *meat* and a couple of fantastic desserts.

I found a mock squid recipe and I'm going to make sushi rolls with that, maybe samosas and a nice chutney...

I went to the London Dans Le Noir. It's a lot of fun, really quite an experience, I don't think I'd ever been in total darkness before. The food was a bit disappointing though, which is a shame because it really should have been about incredible flavours and textures. It was all a bit bland and unexciting.

If this was me, disaster would certainly strike. I am not the most coordinated person in daylight, and so dining in the dark is a nightmare waiting to happen.
