Turns out New Yorkers don't want to eat tasting menus with no utensils in a steamy, completely dark room full of screaming people. Dans Le Noir, Midtown's "dining in the dark" restaurant, has officially closed. From the restaurant's website:
We are sorry to inform that Dans le Noir ? experience is now closed in NYC. During 15 month more than 10.000 New Yorkers lived this unique experience. But we don't have enough visitors to continue as it is not financially reasonable. You are now welcome to our franchise in Europe (Paris, London, Barcelona, St Petersburg). We may re-open a franchise in NYC in the following month in a different place.The restaurant launched multiple deals and specials over the last year and a half, but nothing could save this place. For more on the terrifying experience of eating at this restaurant, check out Eater's Shitshow Week review from last summer.
