This October, the multi-award-winning dining in the dark concept Noire at Fairmont Dubai will offer guests a take on 5-star gourmet cuisine in pitch darkness.
The themed dinner revolves around a story: “legend has it, many years ago there was a hospital for the visually impaired on the current grounds of Fairmont Dubai. Patients started disappearing mysteriously at the hospital some 55 years ago, eventually forcing its closure. Among them, a young dark-haired woman, dressed in white, who can every now and then be seen wandering around the floors of the hotel.”
During the three-course dinner in the haunted canteen, guests’ sense of sight gets removed in order to heighten taste, smell, sound and touch throughout the 90-minute dining experience. All ‘nurses’ at guests’ service are equipped with night-vision goggles to assist patients throughout their journey in a fully blackened out setting.
The 1.5-hour multi-sensory dining experience includes a three-course menu with paired beverages, and a post-dining reception (in the light) to discuss the featured menu with the ‘ch(i)ef-surgeon’.
The experience is priced at AED 360 with soft beverages and AED 399 with grape pairing per person, available from October 1-31, Monday to Saturday at 7.30pm.
