Fred Dickieson gastronomic and creative cuisine is based on the selection of high quality ingredients. All our menus are tested and improved through tastings by sensory experts in pitch darkness.

THE SPIRIT OF WINE

Blind wine tasting in pitch darkness accompanied by our sommelier Fabio Sutera: rediscover wine through an original and multi-sensory approach combining taste and smell.
On request, the team can also organise tastings of delicatessen products. An excellent suggestion for a Wine Club, a stag do or a hen party.

TEAM BUILDING

By going off the beaten track, participants will be forced to step outside their comfort zone and cooperate to find solutions. A convivial experience that breaks with conventions and hierarchies as you dive into darkness and discover others... without preconceptions.

Dans le Noir ? the social media detox experience in London

in Blog

by Super User

A unique social experience in our London restaurant

If the first thing you do every morning is to take your phone and watch your Insta feed before feeding yourself, If the last thing you do every night before kissing your partner and saying “Good night” is to use your device and check the latest news on Facebook. Well, this article might give you a solution to have a social media detox for an evening.

At Dans le Noir ?, the unique dining in the dark restaurant in London, we collect everything that may glow in the dark prior your experience. Cellphone, watches, no source of light is tolerated. It is one of the most impacting principle of the night: you will reconnect with your friends, colleagues or partner and even meet with some new friends at your table while never be disturbed by a text message or a notification on your phone. It’s one of the great power of the dark room, so enjoy!

No judgement, just social exchange in our London restaurant

For once, no one will look at you or judge you. We are all convinced that using social media platform gives us credit and gratitude. In the dark room, you reconnect with yourself and your senses. The French Prime Minister in 2004 has experienced the dining in the dark restaurant in Paris and during his introspection he didn’t say a word. Everyone was very worried but at the end, he told the founder of the concept, Edouard de Broglie: “Tonight, I was with myself and it felt good.”. And that’s a major reason for the VIP to come at the restaurant because no one will recognise them and ask them a selfie!

What is essential is invisible to the eye, so live now this social experience in our london restaurant

Entering the dark room is a powerful experience, you are guided by one of our blind or vision impaired staff and that person becomes your eyes for the evening. You will transfer your trust and be helped by someone with a disability.  Forget your feed or your last Facebook post, we’re talking about REAL human encounter.

But more than a human exchange, you will have to guess what is on your plates and trust us in pitch darkness your taste buds can be confused. No cellphones mean no endless food photography’s session, just the pleasure of enjoying the moment for its true flavor. Our plates are designed by our Chef to awaken your senses (you can even use your finger to eat, no one will blame you for that!). Is it soft as a pork fillet or tasty as a braised lamb? In the dark room, you are losing your preconceived ideas brought by vision.

Are you ready to reconnect with yourself and be guided by your other senses ?
