Dining in the Dark at Chef Adrianne's: Enlightening!

Here are photos of last night's Dining in the Dark experience at Chef Adrianne's Vineyard Restaurant and Bar. It was quite the task to aim a spoon full of mushroom broth and an orgasmic pork wonton in the right direction without spilling all over yourself and your neighbor.... on that note, sorry, neighbor.

Who knew a flute of Corona would make it taste so much better? Maybe it was the fresh ginger. Either way, we downed it.

Fried pork wontons with szechuan peppercorns gave us a tingling, numbing feel (fun fact: aphrodisiac)​.

I can't wait to try this with the wife. Something fun & out of the norm. Have tried Chef Adrianne's at several events and have always been pleasently surprised by the flavors she puts together.

Chef Adrianne is a gifted chef, lights on or off!!! If you've never tasted her cooking safe the nasty editorials until you do. KA is right, her food is "FUCKING AWESOME"!!!! and then some.

dining in the dark like this tasting is just ridiculous. it serves no purpose. you are chinese food in a dark room. that's it. Would you have even attended, or even liked, this tasting if the lights were on? there is really no reason for this to even have occurred, let alone merited an article about.

That food looks horrible .... The Chinese restaurant down the corner does better ... I think mr Rodriguez got payed to say it was good

Your thoughts of the Chinese restaurant down the corner are kindly noted. This is not a Chinese restaurant. Chef Adrianne's VR&WB did a Chinese tasting menu in honor of Chinese New Year. Whether the food looks "horrible" or not is irrelevant. We were not supposed to see it as we ate (hence, dark dining). And thanks, but I was not paid to say a word.

Keep talking trash GUEST. You personify FOREVER ALONE. Looking good and actually tasting GREAT (which by the way it was FUCKING AWESOME ) are two different things. You werent there so put your money where your mouth is and actually attend one of these tastings before opening your ignorant face up to spew hate.

Alex never used the word "good". If anything she kept it pretty objective. But thanks for playing.
