Dinner in the Dark takes sight out of the dining equation, allowing you to focus on your other senses, elevating them to a whole new level. Tastes, aromas and textures intensify as you savor each course, ever so deftly complemented with wine pairings, as only master Chef David Burke can imagine!

The menu is a surprise!

Casey Webb, quoted in Patch NJ by Carly Baldwin
(Casey is host of “Man vs. Food” on the Cooking Channel):

“Often, we are consumed by the surroundings and chatter at a restaurant. But when one of your senses is taken away you must tune into the others,” said Webb – NJ Patch

Chef Burke interviewed by NJ Monthly by KT Harrison:

Burke’s new M.O. is designed “to make the evening all about surprise and discovery. It’s really empowering to learn how much your other senses can add to a meal when you can’t see what’s going on.”

The reason, Burke says, is that “tasting without seeing refocuses your taste buds on flavor and texture. You sniff the food, explore its crispness or creaminess. Your hearing is enhanced, too. So is your social radar. You chat with your neighbors without knowing what they look like, which is very cool.”
