EatBeat: SoLita Delray Puts Diners in the Dark – on Purpose

August 30th, 2011 · No Comments

Servers, not diners, will wear these during SoLita's Dining in the Dark dinner

For an all-sensory dining experience, SoLita Delray  has created a SoLita in the Dark menu for adventurous diners. A one-seating dinner will be served Sept. 14 at the restaurant in Pineapple Grove.

Diners will be completely in the dark once seated in the VIP room and acclimated to their place settings. They’ll first be asked about any dietary restrictions or allergies to make sure everyone at the tables can eat all foods.

Servers will be fitted with night-vision goggles to serve them the foods from Chef Anthony “Radar” Risoli’s kitchen. Italian specialties are on the menu.

Dining in the Dark a European experience

This will be the beginning of a dining in the dark series at SoLita. Market 17 in Fort Lauderdale has a series of these, but this is a first for the Palm Beach County area.

The trend began in Europe as chefs sought to engage diners with their foods using all their senses. It’s said that taste becomes more intense when vision is obscured.

Only one seating at each dinner is available and seating is limited – reservations are required. Cost is $59 not including tax, tip or beverages. Dinner is Wednesday, Sept. 14.
