The opening of Dans Le Noir, New York's first-ever dining in the dark restaurant, has been pushed back to February 1 (it was originally slated to make its grand debut at the end of December). So, fans of eating crocodile meat in pitch darkness are just going to have to wait a few more weeks.
If you're still on the fence about whether or not this dining experience is for you, take a look at some of the rules and regulations listed on on the Dans Le Noir website:
· We recommend using the restrooms before entering the dark dining room, so as not to spoil the experience.The management also notes that diners are "not allowed to move without assistance." Sounds like a real hoot.
· All Guests enter in the dark room at their own risk and must sign a Release and Waiver of Liability.
· Patrons can never be intoxicated in the dark room, and will be asked to leave the room at the first request of their guide. “Dans le Noir?” will not serve alcohol to a table where one or more guests are noticeably intoxicated.
· The restaurant accepts no liability for damage or loss, except when our staff is directly and indisputably responsible. In any case, patrons must not bring or wear expensive clothes or accessories for this experience (maximum $400).
