The concept of "Dark Dining," a meal in which the customer is blindfolded, is not very new. But Community Board 3 just gave the green light for a liquor license to "blind dining" franchise Dans Le Noir?, who will be adding an extra twist to their New York establishment: blind waiters. They say the service will create an "interesting sensory experience," and Lighthouse International, a nonprofit whose services include finding jobs for blind people, say they have plenty of people who would love the employment opportunity. Sounds great, but this sounds a little too much like we're going to wind up eating blue steak for us to get completely on board.
