They say removing one sense heightens the others. Instead, it shows me just how entirely, utterly dependent I am on one. For the past hour, I've been eating dinner completely blindfolded. In a restaurant, alongside about 20 or so of my closest strangers. They're all blindfolded too.
Two nights a week, Camaje in New York City offers a prix-fixe meal unlike any other. It's called Dinners In The Dark, where guests don a cushioned blindfold — outside, so you don't even see the inside of the restaurant until the meal's over — and walk in one by one, conga line-style, to try that night's menu. For the next two and a half hours, you eat using your senses of touch, taste, scent, and sound. (You can take the blindfold off, if you're ever feeling uncomfortable, but most people leave them on until the very end.)
