Dinner in the Dark will be held in the main gallery at the Hammond Museum by the fireplace along with live entertainment for a memorable and unique dining experience with added surprise elements to ignite your senses.

It is said that we taste food with a multitude of sensory receptors on the tongue, our sense of smell, touch and visual stimuli. But what happens when you eliminate the benefit of sight? Experts say the other senses become amplified to compensate seeing creating an extraordinary culinary dining experience.

“Had a wonderful evening!!! I want to come to the March dinner with my hubbie!! Wish I could attend February but busy. Thanks for every detail you thought of – table, dancers, music, favors, and of course the menu. Absolutely fantastic!!!”
Liza

“The food and wine were spectacular, the portions generous, and the entertainment and ambiance were transcendental. Your blind tasting concept is an absolute winner. We can’t wait for the next one!”
Peter and Kathi

“It was an extraordinary meal both the blind tastings and the entrees in between. We look forward to your next creation.”
Maryam and Howard

“Thanks for including us Nisa. Nice to meet you and great job on orchestrating last night. We really enjoyed ourselves.”

The first blind tasting dinners were believed to have been held in Ancient Greece and the experience has been reinvented all over the world in various forms by the likes of Danny Meyer and his Union Square Cafe in conjunction with NYU, Dining in the Dark KL(Kuala Lumpur),  The Blind Cafe (San Francisco), Dialogo nel Buio (Milan) and Noire (Dubai). Some use a completely darkened room while others use sleeping masks or blindfolds. At the Hammond the blind folds are donned just before each course is served.
