Dark Dining Comes to Bay Area

In dark restaurants customers spend the entire experience literally in the dark. Servers wear night vision goggles (although some may be vision impaired) and the diner must rely on their other senses to guide them through the tasting. Diners say that they taste things in a different way. The trend has spread to Europe (especially Germany where they are called Blindekuh – blind cow) and LA where the meals are often accompanied by concerts and poetry reading that are also enjoyed in the dark.
Thanks to Taste TV and Million Dollar Dinner foodies in San Francisco will soon be eating in the dark. These dinners are by reservation only and last two hours. Do not be late as no one will be seated after 8 p.m. The experience is $95 a person and are held at Fort Mason Center.
