Easter in Brussels - chocolate surprises Dans le Noir ? Brussels x NAO

in Blog

by Aurore

The bells are ringing at Dans le Noir ? Brussels


Easter, the most eagerly awaited holiday for food lovers, is approaching and allows us to fall back into childhood for a weekend. This year, Dans le Noir ? Brussels offers you the opportunity to celebrate it in an original way with family and friends. For the occasion, your Brussels restaurant is not planning a treasure hunt in the dark (for obvious safety reasons 😊) but little chocolate surprises during the week-end!


We have chosen to collaborate with NAO chocolate makers, on the Belgian market since 2015, which offers organic and unpackaged chocolates. Dans le Noir ? Brussels is proud to collaborate with a concept sharing similar values and acommon objective of satisfying our customers' taste buds:

  • An eco-responsible initiative: NAO favours short distribution channels; Dans le Noir ? works on a 100% surprise menu with fresh, local and seasonal products.
  • An awakening of the senses: Whatever its shape, colour or texture, chocolate is above all a moment of pure indulgence, and this is what NAO transmits through its productions; in the absence of sight, dining in the dark in our restaurant allows you to challenge all your other senses thanks to different flavours, textures, smells, and temperatures.
  • A desire to spread joy to our customers: by giving in to a moment of pleasure and greed with NAO chocolates; and through a unique experience at Dans le Noir ? Brussels


Will you find NAO chocolates in the dark at Dans le Noir ? Brussels? 


Be clever once in the room to find the chocolates hidden in unlikely places on the shared tables: a good opportunity to develop your team spirit and to exchange with your table neighbours, thus accentuating the social aspect of our experience! Your guides will of course be on hand to give you some clues...

Book your table now to live this unique experience and maybe be one of the lucky ones who will leave with their chocolate bar: https://brussels.danslenoir.com/en/booking-brussels.html

Interview with Grégory Lauwaert, Chef of the restaurant Dans le Noir ? Brussels

in Blog

by chanael

To help you learn more about our concept, we interviewed Grégory Lauwaert, the Chef of Warwick Brussels and Dans le Noir ?.  Indeed, we do not only eat in total darkness, but we also offer you a full-fledged tasting experience: a 100% surprise menu with a combination of textures and flavours as well as local and seasonal products. We tell you more about Chef Grégory Lauwaert and his new challenge.

 

chef dans le noir brussels

Hello Chef, to begin with we would like to know what your background is?

First of all, I trained as an apprentice for 5 years in a starred restaurant in Brussels and then became a kitchen clerk. I finally became a Chef when I was 26 years old. I am currently working at the Warwick and for the "Dans le Noir” concept.

How would you describe your cooking and your culinary style?

I have a Belgian-French cooking style, but I can cook a bit of everything. With the Warwick Hotel and the Dans le Noir? restaurant, my cooking is very much focused on gastronomy.

In 2021, the restaurant Dans le Noir opened at the Warwick, and you became the chef of this innovative concept, how did you see this new challenge?

I took it as a totally different and new experience because serving food that will be tasted in the dark forces me to work differently. We have to do some studies and tests around this experience to get an idea of how tastes and flavours change in the dark without confusing the customers too much.

Did you enjoy having this freedom in the making of these new types of menus and beyond the cuisine, in the Dans le Noir experience?

For me, I consider Dans le Noir ? to be a very nice life experience as much as a cooking experience since it is totally different to work with with visually impaired people. You must re-think your organisation so that we can work in symbiosis with the guides and for the full experience to work well.

Do you have any inspirations in the kitchen such as chefs or a particular culinary style?

My first chef himself was an excellent mentor who taught me how to appreciate the French gastronomy and that's why I like to associate it with Belgian food in this surprise menu. I like to work with seasonal products, and the fact that we change the menu every three months at Dans le Noir ? reinforces this habit.

To finish and come back to our concept, we would like to know what Dans le Noir? means to you?

It's something I could never have imagined doing, making meals that will be tasted blind is in my opinion something that goes far beyond the kitchen, the whole infrastructure around the experience is to be lived once. I wish it to any chef to try this way of working because as I said, you can have so much fun in the kitchen and always go further!

Finally, here are a few of our last tripadvisor reviews:

Very nice experience!

"An experience to try, the meal was delicious, thanks to our guide Carmen! We didn't see the time pass..." Eva R. 02/2022

Excellent experience!

"Warm welcome, excellent food, very convivial moment and full of discoveries, we warmly recommend!" Vbkalizee 02/2002

 
"Great!

"I had the opportunity to eat in this restaurant with a friend, the was very good, and the staff is very nice!" Esteller 01/2022

DANS LE NOIR ? BRUSSELS : A UNIQUE IDEA FOR YOUR CORPORATE EVENTS

in Blog

by Aurore

Since the beginning of the pandemic, our lives but also our way of working drastically changed. If Smartworking has big advantages, teambuilding is clearly not one of them. Thus, companies are wondering how to strengthen the ties between collaborators if they only communicate through their screens. At Dans le Noir ? we may have a few ideas for you!

Within our restaurant in Brussels, we first invite your team to get out of their comfort zone with a dinner in pitch darkness. Challenge your employees with a surprise menu, and let them explore their senses with different flavours, aromas, textures, temperatures. You will quickly realise that communication becomes easier and more spontaneous in the dark: a great way to spend quality time with your colleagues!

If you want to make your event even more special, you can also enjoy sensorial activities in the dark, before or during your meal. Deprived of the sight, the participants will improve communication, foster creativity, and build networks.

Our amazing team of vision impaired guides will lead you through this amazing experience and be with you every step of the way!

*Activity suggestions : Braille secret message, Scent boxes, Drawing in the dark, The block of paper tower, Anecdotes games,…
