Dans Le Noir

On Tuesday night I was off to Dans Le Noir, a French restaurant in Farringdon where you eat in pitch darkness. A blind waiter escorts you to your table where you are served a surprise menu and you're left to struggle with the wine, water and bread. It's a fascinating experience: without your sight, you realise how much you rely on hand and face gestures when talking; you're not sure how far people are from you so are unsure about how loud you should be; and you take a lot more care about tasting what you're eating. You also retain muscle memory, so rather than knocking glasses all over the place, you remember where you placed them.

The food was good, but at £50 per head, a one off experience.
