Christmas Catering made easy

The Dinner in the Dark evenings held at Bacchus have quickly become an exciting and innovative new dining experience in Cayman, so Bacchus has decided to extend its offering for a special Dining in the Dark Christmas special, to accommodate Christmas parties and festive events.
Menu prices start at CI$29.95 for a three course menu up to CI$49.95 per person, which includes a six course gourmet dinner with champagne reception.
Keith Griffin the owner and Executive Chef at Bacchus says the idea came to him after he learned about the concept taking off around the world: “Dining in the dark originally came from Germany and was introduced by a blind gentleman who wanted to give people the experience of being blind for a couple of hours (he actually uses blind servers in his dining room). The idea has now taken of in Los Angeles and Las Vegas where it is getting a lot of media attention.”
Diners enjoy all the usual fantastic quality of cuisine that they have come to expect at Bacchus, just without the aid of sight. Windows are blackened and the lights are turned out completely for two courses on the trot, only to be switched on at low levels for a short burst to allow for quick breaks. Diners really get to appreciate the fabulous flavours, smells and textures of the dishes in a unique and inspiring way.
Restaurant manager Martin Pilat says since Bacchus introduced their own Dinner in the Dark series in April customers have really raved about this unique experience of sensory deprivation.
“Everyone always had a great time, and the feedback has been really positive,” Martin confirms. “We therefore thought dining in the dark would make the perfect Christmas party for a group of friends or colleagues looking for something a bit out of the ordinary, yet still reasonably priced.”
