Not By Bread Alone: Experience Eating in Total Darkness

As part of the theatrical show called Not Bread Alone, the pop-up restaurant BlackOut will have blind waiters serving dinner in complete darkness.
By: Mike Singer

Diners happily exchange  banknotes aplenty to eat at any of Danny Meyer's celebrated restaurants that serve up complete packages of deliciousness and presentation. But from January 16 to to February 3, he's providing a menu at a New York restaurant where presentation is given a new light -- by way of no light at all.  As part of the theatrical show called Not Bread Alone, the pop-up restaurant BlackOut will have blind waiters serving dinner in complete darkness (no light-emitting devices allowed).

Not Bread Alone is put together by an Israeli deaf-blind theatre company. Eleven deaf-blind actors will bake bread on stage at New York University's Skirball Center while sharing memories and dreams with the audience.

Special ticket packages include seats at the show and a three- or four-course menu at the restaurant. You can get more information on both on the Skirball's website.
