Restaurants are constantly trying to find new and innovative ways to expand the guest's sensory experience. There are a few around the world that have embraced the latest dinning trend of dining in the dark. The idea is guests are lead into a completely dark room and fed courses in the dark without being able to see a thing they are eating, textures and smells are supposed to be enhanced. O'Noir in Montreal is the latest to embrace the trend. Maille mustard hosted a dinner at Bob Blummer’s Toronto loft where he created a sensory style menu based on the dinning in the dark concept. Each of the diners were blindfolded (the scarf was a gift, presumably as a peace offering for making us look goofy) and seated a the table. Bob focused on texture, aroma and he was careful to design dishes in small bites to make them easier to eat and of course each dish featured a different mustard . There were also wines paired with each course that we had great fun guessing what we were drinking and what was in each dish. I thought it would be a great idea for kids, they would love to be blind folded, eat with their hands and you might be able to squeeze something healthy into them! Bob explaining what will happen.
