Dining in the Dark is a foodie experience like no other and there’s a special Halloween edition this year.
Imagine stepping inside a darkened restaurant and being served a three-course meal. You struggle at first with the cutlery, but you soon take your first bite and the flavours and textures of what you’re eating are on another level. Your sense of taste is heightened by your loss of sight. 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 returns to Sydney so you can find out for yourself if it’s true.
Dining In The Dark promises to elevate your meal to a whole new level with dimmed surroundings leaving just you, your taste buds and your sense of smell to enjoy a three-course meal at Butchers Daughter—one of Sydney’s premier catering companies and event venues.
Guests will be led into the barely-lit space by a guide who’ll be on hand to make sure you don’t bump into anything on your way in and blindfolds will be provided to all guests, which will help to heighten your senses. They also help stop you from peeking at what’s on your plate and ruin the experience.
Guests do have the option of choosing from a meat, seafood or vegan set menu prior to the event to ensure that they don’t eat something they don’t want to. However, that’s pretty much all the information you get about your meal. Besides, any more and the experience just wouldn’t be the same.
Dining In The Dark has received rave reviews from attendees who have experienced the event.
💬 Aishlea S. – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Fantastic and well thought experience. Really had to rely on other senses to get your way through the table and manage to carefully grab your wine without spilling. Food menu was well thought out… Waitress Georgia was fantastic. Had a great time and would recommend to all”
💬 Devon P. – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Fabulous from start to finish. Waiters were great and welcoming and then food was amazing! Definitely would recommend and can’t wait to come back!”
Sydney’s Dining In The Dark event nights will take place midweek with sittings at 6pm and 8:30pm.
The special Halloween edition of Dining In The Dark occurs on Thursday 28 October as well as Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 October with two sittings each night.
