V Temnote? restaurant

This restaurant is a member of the international Dans le noir? chain (both 'Dans le noir' and 'V Temnote' mean 'In the dark') of bar-restaurants where clients eat in the complete darkness and are served by visually impaired people. So far, this is the only place in Moscow and in Russia where you can become so close to the world of the blind.

The restaurant is located in the medical center of Igor Medvedev. In daytime, it works as a regular institution with lighted rooms, and the entrance into the dark hall is covered with lightproof curtains.

In the evening, the restaurant opens at 5 p.m. By the way, it is better to reserve the table beforehand.

The dark hall has seats for 50 persons. Visitors of the restaurant may choose dishes from four different menus. ‘White Menu’ includes meat and fish dishes. ‘Red Menu’ and ‘Blue Menu’ offer meat or fish dishes correspondingly while ‘Green Menu’ is vegetarian. Clients of the restaurant can also order a ‘Surprise-Menu’ which means that you will not know what menu they would bring to you.

Guests of the restaurant will be offered to visit the restroom (lit) before dinner in order to not interrupt their unusual experience. They also will be asked to leave all their belongings — purses, umbrellas, mobile phones, lighters, pens and other devices which can emit light — in special lockers. Clients will have to follow the blind server who will usher them to their table. After dinner, they will be able to go to a lit bar where they could have some tea, coffee and other beverages.

Complete darkness sharpens our senses — taste, smell and touch — making well-known dishes taste so different that, having ordered the surprise menu, our visitors are often unable to identify what food they are eating, meat or fish. Salt and sugar are perceived much better too.

V Temnote? contributes all its profit to All Russia Association of the Blind.
