Enjoy a 100% surprise menu in total darkness … And not always guess what your plate contains. For the first time, clients of the Pullman Center Ramblas hotel (84 allées Jean Jaurès) will discover the “Diner in the dark? “. A unique initiative in Toulouse: “In total darkness, customers are served by a team of six visually impaired people,” explains Chanael Lenoir, responsible for this concept in Toulouse, founded in Paris in 2004 by Edouard de Broglie. People trained for the occasion in this service for two weeks by Ghada, ten years of experience and visually impaired herself ”. A sensory experience of taste, textures, sensations concocted by chef Yousri Ben Jeday who offers a menu in the colors of the southwest. A friendly parenthesis also where sharing and exchange are invited at the table with customers in the present moment, where the laptop is banned, left at the entrance. And finally a human adventure where the service is provided by “different” people receive we trust. “Customers must put their prejudices aside and ask themselves the right questions,” continues Chanael Lenoir. A formula that is also very popular with companies which often, after this unexpected dinner, hire visually impaired people ”. Sylvie, a music school teacher, is one of these waiter guides: “This experience touches the depths of the human being,” she says. A way of accepting each other, combined with a great taste experience. During these dinners, people exchange, tell each other, laugh together, much more than in a “normal” dinner. A unique inclusive moment ”.
