Step inside a restaurant cloaked in mystery and unlock the full potential of your senses with the Dining in the Dark experience in Philadelphia. Taking place at a lively spot in Philly, this one-of-a-kind event includes far more than questionable eyewear.
At The Twisted Tail, you will spend the evening distinguishing between flavors, focusing on sounds and smells, and debunking the age-old adage of “we eat with our eyes”. Taking place on select dates over the coming months, don’t miss out on the chance to taste the eclectic gastronomic offerings at The Twisted Tail in an entirely new way!
What to expect at Dining in the Dark?
This special event promises to “elevate your meal to a whole new level” with darkened surroundings – leaving just you, your taste buds and your sense of smell to enjoy a three-course meal served at The Twisted Tail. Meal options include vegan, seafood and meat options so that diners have some control over the kinds of tangs and tastes their unknowing senses will encounter.
Blindfolds will be provided to all guests, which will help to heighten your senses but also help stop you from peaking at what’s on your plate because the temptation is hard to resist. Don’t worry about stumbling through the darkened environment, as guides will be on hand to make sure you don’t bump into anything on your way in. Eating, though, is on you.
What might not sound like the most relaxing dinner date can actually prove to be one of the most memorable nights out. Invite friends or take someone special to the Dining in the Dark experience and find the fun in playing with your food and give in to the sensorial surprises.
