It actually is possible to literally dine in the dark at Opaque inside V Lounge in Santa Monica where guests eat in complete blackness with food delivered by blind servers. Now Filippo Cortivo is taking a page from that book offering Blindfold Your Dinner at his casual eatery Osteria Mamma on March 23.
Basically, the idea behind such a concept is to limit your senses (sight) to heighten your other senses (taste). So, diners are blindfolded and embark on a four course dinner plus wine pairing, after evaluating each courses diners are then able to remove his/her blindfolded before continuing on to the next dish. This culinary experiences runs $80 per person or $150 for a couple, resys must be made in advance here. [EaterWire]
