Dans le noir ? changes our preconceptions. Here, disability is seen as a positive difference. All the waiters (AKA guides) are blind, your guide is the only person that will and can help you once you are inside the restaurant. The blind become your eyes and ultimately your light, a radical reversal of perspective that encourages tolerance and respect. The disabled become the able and viceversa. This experience “opens your eyes” to a whole new world of sensations. A temporary glimpse at the reality of blindness that will change you and your opinion about this “other” world forever.
Since 2009, over 800,000 people have enjoyed the experience throughout their 5 restaurants around the world- in London, Paris, NYC, Barcelona and St. Petersburg. In every single restaurant, at least 40% of the staff is blind presenting long time opportunities for people that we considered “disabled.” But as Dominique explained to us “its not that we are giving them an opportunity, it's exactly the opposite, without them we wouldn’t be here.”
There is definitely another world besides the sighted one, and Dans le noir ? is the perfect opportunity to discover it together with a unique gastronomical experience.
