After a short hiatus, Opaque re-launched on August 23 at Santa Monica’s V Lounge. For the sensory experience, diners consume three courses in a pitch-black room, guided and served by blind or visually impaired individuals who have been specially trained. The organization describes the experience as “a journey of taste, sound and touch…Sounds tell a story, aromas come alive and elegance is felt.”
The three-course experience costs $99 per person, including tax, and takes place every Friday and Saturday evening, beginning at 6 PM.
