Now fixtures in several major European cities, restaurants where guests eat in complete darkness are a growing trend â€” Los Angeles' Opaque introduced their weekly blackout meals just last July. Now, for the second year running, Dark Dining Projects brings a more artsy, seasonal version to New York. Founded by Dana Salisbury, a multidisciplinary artist, Dark Dining Projects not only forgoes lighting, but approaches the concept as an artistic project, collaborating with chefs, artists, and performers to turn a meal into a "sensory feast." Starting 16 January, the event will take place at Camaje Bistro in the West Village on Mondays and Tuesdays through 28 March, including a special Valentine's Day edition, a singles mixer, and a hand-fed experience. Call 212-673-8184 for reservations.
