Has anyone tried the Dans le Noir restaurant in Paris, London or Brussels?

I've only read articles about it, but it's a restaurant with a lit bar and a completely pitch black interior. Before entering the interior, you choose your food from a menu at the bar. All the waiters are blind and you are guided by one of them to your table. You also need to be guided by one of them to visit the restroom. The food is served in total darkness, and I suppose they give you some tips on eating in the dark. The philosophy behind all this is the educate the public about the experience of eating in a restaurant as a blind person. The darkness is also supposed to heighten your sense of taste, but some journalists have reported that it actually dulls their sense of taste if they can't see what they're eating.

Here's the web site:
