Dans le Noir ?

While it's not located in Remuera, Dining in the Dark is a unique sensory experience you won't want to miss...

Dining in absolute darkness is a sensory experience that awakens your senses and enables you to completely re-evalute your perception of taste and smell.  Complete darkness makes communication more intense, authentic and spontaneous as you get to know your fellow diners.  And it's a human experience where those with visual impairments become your eyes and guides for a short time in an intriguing, sensual world...

French company Dans le Noir ? has brought this unique dining experience to 1.2 million guests worldwide, and opened at Rydes Hotel in Auckland on 24 March.   Enjoy a fabulous surprise menu created by Head Chef Owen Rarity while you dine in complete darkness, guided by blind or vision-impaired waitstaff.  This experience not only gives an insight into the world of vison-impaired people, but reverses the usual roles.
