Since the opening of Canada’s only “Dine in the Dark” restaurant under the name of O.NOIR in Montreal and Toronto (in 2009), O.NOIR continues to bring its extraordinary culinary adventure to guests from near and far. Already the rage in Europe, Australia, Los Angeles, New York, O.NOIR Toronto invites Torontonians and all guests to experience food, drink and conversation like never before - without their sight!

"It's a sensual dining experience like no other!" says O.NOIR founder Moe Alameddine... "When you eat food in the dark, your remaining senses are heightened to savour the smell and taste of food. Even simple, everyday dishes like potatoes and yogurt take on a culinary flare."

But O.NOIR does more than just fires the imagination and stimulates the senses. After an hour or two in complete darkness (that's right, no flashlights, matches, cell phones, cigarette lighters or luminous watches), customers gain a better understanding of what it's like to be blind - just like the restaurant's entire wait staff.

This socially conscious concept sprang from Jorge Spielmann, a blind pastor in Zurich who used to blindfold his dinner guests at his home so they could share his eating experience. In 1999, Spielmann opened Blindekuh (German for Blind Cow), a project aimed at teaching the sighted about the sightless world and providing jobs for blind people. "How lucky am I." Moe proudly states. "I get to do something I love and make a difference".

Good cause or not, O.NOIR offers everything you'd expect from a fine restaurant: Great service, a delicious menu... plus, a culinary experience like no other!

O.NOIR Toronto continues to build its future, for its unique and special presence differing from any other restaurants and for its long lasting beyond our time. This vision is shared between founder Moe and current owner Dr. J. R. Feng and the staff. With the growing number of guests coming to the restaurant to explore this fun, romantic, and unique dining experience, and the dedication and hard work of the service staff at O.Noir Toronto, we are fully optimistic about this vision and its evolution.
