For an enlightening, unusual multi-sensorial dining experience, come enjoy fine cuisine in complete darkness at O.Noir Restaurant. You read well ... no flashlight, candle, match or watch light, no cell phone or lighter.
O.Noir on Prince Arthur Street is Canada’s first-ever “dine in the dark” restaurant. The unique concept deprives patrons of their sight over the course of a meal, which in turn amplifies their other senses: exciting and electric, smells, sounds and textures take on a whole new dimension.
The Mediterranean-inspired menu ranges from grilled beef shoulder filet with Madagascar green pepper sauce to salmon filet with green tomato purée and vegan mushroom, leek and sage pie. Surprise dishes, chosen by the chef, add to the adventure of this dining-in-the-dark experience.
Perhaps disorienting at first, the experience offers incredible insight into what it is like to be blind. What’s more, a percentage of O.Noir’s profits are given to support local associations that serve blind and visually impaired people —like the restaurant's entire waitstaff that takes care of your every need.
