If you completely forgo utensils and grab a steak or piece of fish with your fingers during The Eclipse Dark Dining Experience, your dining companions won't judge you. And that's because they, just like you, will be wearing a sleep-mask blindfold and won't be able to see what is going on the dining room. In fact, they just might be doing the same thing.
The dark dining experience encourages patrons to use all of their available senses, sans sight, to enjoy their three-course meals. Adding to the mystery is the fact that the menu is kept a complete secret until the end of the dinner, when the waitstaff presents photos or samples of the actual meal to diners to show them what they just ate. Keeping the meal a secret is a fun way for guests to savor each dish without letting any preconceived notions influence their opinion.
The chefs recognize that diners are trusting them more than usual, and thus they only serve typical proteins, such as beef, chicken, seafood, pork, and lamb. And because eating can get messy, The Eclipse Dark Dining Experience's staff recommends that patrons come to dinner dressed in less expensive clothes or a protective layer of bubble wrap.
