Dining in the dark now comes to Africa for the first time with Nairobi being the inaugural host!
Dubbed, Gizani, which means ‘in the dark’ in swahili, the dining in the dark concept has been popularized world over by the international chain of restaurants, Dans le Noir, which originated from Paris in 2004. The first ever event took place on May 15th at Tribe Hotel with diners being aided by visually impaired waiters trained by Fabrice Roszczka, founder of the international Dans Le Noir franchise. Locally, the concept was founded by Yaniv Gelnik and Abdul Kamara – who himself has been visually impaired since 2008. The aim is to encourage awareness of the other senses, particularly taste, as well as to encourage diners to switch off from daily distractions and focus on what’s important: connecting with the food and people around you. Now in full swing, Gizani invites you to step into this intriguing sensory experience and you can start by getting a ticket on eatout.co.ke/events/gizani.
