Editorial Review for Opaque-Dining in The Dark – by Patrick Heig
A European concept by way of LA, "dark dining" is like a power outtage with gourmet cuisine and white-gloved service. Before entering, diners are presented with a multiple-choice (beef or fish, salad or pasta, etc.), three-course prix-fixe menu. Guests are then introduced to their servers--all of whom are blind--and led by the hand to their tables. The inside of the restaurant isn't dim, or even "dark;" it is eyeball-achingly black, the idea being that with one sense completely extinguished, taste and smell are heightened. Hearing sharpens, too, and people-watching becomes people-listening as diners feel their way through the meal (most people quickly abandon silverware), and start planning their next blind date.

Insider TipsLook good
Or, rather, don't look bad; this meal can get messy, so don't wear white unless you want it tie-dyed with food and wine stains, and don't wear anything that's irreplaceable.Know before you go
No walk-ins are taken at this reservation-only affair.Parking
It's fairly easy to find a spot on McAllister, and there is a parking lot on Gough and Grove.

Johnny Depp was there!!!! or at least someone that damn sounds like him, I could have sworn I heard his voice. Staff wouldn't tell me as 'people' come and hide in the dark. Apparently more so in Hollywood where this originated. We were not the first ones to find out but apparently Thrillist subscribers had the first go on this as they were on to it before Opaque even opened getting them into the opening night, shame on you dailycandy!!!! I am subscribing.
