1. A unique experience that will get you out of your comfort zone
Dining in the Dark is a bold and exciting tasting experience that allows you to appreciate food with more intensity.

This season, Dining in the Dark has set up shop at Deluxe Fun Dining in Uptown Charlotte, offering elevated New American cuisine in a stylish and comfortable setting. The restaurant’s chefs employ innovative cooking techniques and use fresh local ingredients to elevate the dining experience.
3. The variety of menus
Dining in the Dark has thought of everyone. No matter if you’re vegan, pescatarian or a die-hard carnivore, you can choose between three menu options: red, highlighting meat, blue, focusing on seafood and green which is all about the veggies. What they all have in common is that they are made up of three melt-in-your-mouth courses, where delicate layers and intriguing flavor combinations come together and sing! Certainly, if you have any dietary requirements, they can be accommodated if they are indicated in time using the form upon purchase.
4. It is an amazing first date
Unless you’re Amelia Dimoldenberg who thrives on first dates, most of us are a ball of nerves right before the rendez-vous. With the sense of sight eliminated, Dining in the Dark removes the awkwardness in the beginning of the date and it’s a great conversation starter to break the ice. As you both rummage for food and reach out to nothingness trying to locate your wine glasses, you’re sharing laughs, which immediately puts anyone at ease.
5. It’s perfect for long-term partners, too!
In the midst of our busy lives, Dining in the Dark allows partners to carve out dedicated quality time for each other. It’s an opportunity to slow down and focus on each other, without the never-ending distractions of daily routine.
Most importantly, trying out a new gourmet experience together helps to spice things up and bring a refreshing spark to the relationship.
