CamaJe Bistro, New York
CamaJe Bistro is located in New York City in the heart of Greenwich Village. Unlike the other restaurants on this list, the restaurant is, in fact, illuminated, but during the “Dinners in the Dark” patrons wear blindfolds. The chef provides a secret series of dishes and wine pairings, and the set menu is a great way to experience the best CamaJe has to offer. The blindfolds transform the dining experience, while, at the same time, other activities such as entering and leaving the restaurant are easier and more enjoyable.
Opaque, Santa Monica
Opaque Dining has two locations in Santa Monica and San Francisco for interested travelers. A unique spin on the glamorous nightlife of Los Angeles, Opaque is located in the V Lounge but is separate from the club itself. The blind waiters guide you through a maze and into the pitch-black restaurant where they’ll help you order and place your food. Opaque is a great way to expand your clubbing adventures in LA, but, be warned, the food is expensive.
O.Noir has two locations, one in Montreal and one in Toronto. There are different items on the menu, instead of a fixed menu available at many other dining in the dark restaurants, and you order before you enter the dark room. If you want to step outside of your comfort zone, you can order a set menu and forge ahead with just your sense of taste and smell. Either way, five percent of the profits from your meal go to charities that provide assistance to the blind and visually impaired.
