I recently discovered that there’s a restaurant in London called Dans Le Noir? where you dine in pitch darkness. I thought it was a wind-up at first but, incredibly, it’s true. Apparently the deprivation of your sense of sight intensifies your sense of taste. It’s the biggest load of pony I’ve ever heard but I have to concede that it’s a genius scam. Not only does it attract idiots with more money than sense (no pun intended), but the owners can get away with murder. They don’t have to clean the tablecloths, they don’t have to have expensive decor and they save a fortune in electricity. They don’t even have to dress up – they probably wear T-shirts that say ‘There’s one born every minute’.
Anyway, here’s my ‘tribute’ and I’m sorry it’s so late.
