Went to Market 17 this last weekend with my husband to try out their dining in the dark. The idea from dining in the dark comes from Europe, and this was the first restaurant I saw in the US that offered this experience. I absolutely wanted to try it out.
My husband was a little hesitant at the beginning, of not seeing what the food looks like infront of him.
We had a 6 course tasting menu paired with wines. Everything was delicious. The fun thing about this concept is, that you sit in a pitch black room and have no idea what you get served (you can even eat with your hands if you wish), and you really have to use your sense of touch and your sense of taste to positively idendify the food you are eating. And it is really not that easy!! After every course the server asks you what you think you just ate, and then tells you what it really was. It is really a unique experience.
Our server was great and very knowledgeable, and I absolutely will return, next time probably with a larger group, which I think makes the experience even better.
