I doubt it's a coincidence that Dans le Noir has a slew of lovely, dark ladies working the front door. However, it's not about that at all. It's not really about the food either. It's something so strange that you have to try it. That is, if you can handle it.
Dans le Noir is a completely pitch black restaurant where you're served by blind waiters and waitresses. They lead you by hand from the dim anteroom to the diningroom. There is no menu - you don't know what's being served, you don't know where you're seated, you cannot see a damned thing. Matter of fact, it's a kind of darkness you're unlikely to have experienced unless you've turned off your flashlight five miles inside a cave. Your eyes never adjust. You fumble for your silverware, you knock things off the table. You think you can judge your food by taste, but actually you probably cannot.
