9. Strange Places in Canada: Dining in the Dark, Montreal and Toronto

Here’s a different spin on a blind date at this strange place: Montreal and Toronto have restaurants where you dine completely in the dark. The restaurants are named O.NOIR and the pitch for dining in the pitch black is: “When you eat without your sight, your remaining senses are heightened to savour the smell and taste of food.” It’s a style of dining that was begun by a blind pastor in Zurich who wanted his dinner guests share his experience. The wait staff are visually impaired. The cooks are not.
