Dining in the Dark is a distinctive sensory awareness experience in which guests participate in a dining adventure of eating in complete darkness. Featuring a Kentucky Proud menu, prepared especially for the senses of smell, taste, sound, and texture. After each course, participants will be invited to remove their blindfolds to see what they have been eating.
The concept of “Dark Dining,” which enjoyed significant popularity throughout Europe for several years before its introduction in various major cities throughout the United States, has been defined as “a sensory overload that maximizes flavor by suppressing vision, creating the ultimate in dining experience.” The IdeaFestival hosted several “Lights Out Dinners” in Louisville from 2008 to 2012.
Sponsored by IF University and Kentucky Proud. Preregistration is required. Participants should specify on their registration if they would like to be seated with others in a group; otherwise, seating arrangements will be determined by Natasha’s.
