Dining in the dark finally comes to Kenya



My last dining in the dark experience was three years ago in Toronto at a restaurant called O.Noir, which was inspired by the original Parisian experience “Dans le Noir.” The culinary experience was novel and enlightening at the same time.

On 23rd of May 2015, the dining in the dark experience will make its debut in Nairobi, Kenya at Tribe Hotel. Dubbed “Gizani” – Kiswashili for “in the dark” – the event will be a fine dining experience held in complete darkness, assisted by visually impaired staff.

According to EatOut, Gizani’s founder, Abdul Kamara, visually impaired since 2008, is committed to bring a similar experience to the forefront of the African scene, finding momentum in the fast growing cosmopolitan Nairobi context. Gizani introduces an idea of blindness that is positive and dynamic, an example of inclusion and empowerment to make a real contribution to society.

Gizani will show you how to savor the food experience from a different perspective. The exaltation of taste, the allure of fragrance, the sensuality of textures and the pure joy of conversation and music are all parts of the most basic everyday enjoyment.

Tickets will set you back Ksh 6,000. For reservations, click here.
