Miami-Based Culinary Artist Chef Adrianne Calvo Debuts Dark Dining Event on September 20th at Historic Coral Gables Country Club
The Dark Dining Eyes Wide Shut Masquerade Ball a Must-Attend For South Floridian Foodies
MIAMI, Aug. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Chef Adrianne Calvo, the innovating Miami-based culinary artist who has forged a formidable reputation in the South Florida restaurant scene, is pleased to announce the details of the very first Dark Dining event to take place outside of her Kendall restaurant. The Dark Dining Eyes Wide Shut Masquerade Ball, a formal gala event that will mark the introduction of the heightened sensory dining experience into the City Beautiful, will take place on Friday, September 20, 2013 at the historic Coral Gables Country Club, located at 990 Alhambra Circle in Coral Gables.
“We’ve been extremely pleased with the ambiance and energy that each of our previous Dark Dining events has infused into our restaurant,” said Chef Adrianne Calvo, chef and owner of Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar. “When the opportunity was presented to leverage its increasing popularity to raise money for a cause as important as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, it became our mission to take this unique dining experience to the next level,” continued Calvo.
The Dark Dining format, which entails that participants remain fully blindfolded in a dimly lit setting to heighten their enjoyment of a multiple course meal, was initially established as a social trend in Europe. Beginning in September 2009, Calvo became the pioneer of the Dark Dining phenomenon in the South Florida culinary scene by hosting three like-themed events at her restaurant. Always willing to embrace new and unique trends in the culinary field, Calvo and her staff established the Dark Dining concept and over the past four years has become a monthly must-attend event among South Florida foodies.
The Dark Dining Eyes Wide Shut Masquerade Ball will enhance the already vivid experience of a conventional Dark Dining event by incorporating live music, costume, and entertainment within a picturesque locale. A portion of all proceeds from the Dark Dining event will benefit Chef Adrianne’s Make It Count Foundation and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
