London without limits

London without limits

Customers at Lancaster London Hotel are being offered the opportunity to challenge their senses by eating blindfolded.

Forget blind-dating, why not try blind-dining at Island Grill within the Lancaster London hotel?

From 29 September to 2 November, guests at Island Grill, overlooking Hyde Park, will be invited to experience the smells, tastes and
pleasures of delicious cuisine – while blindfolded.

The event is being held to challenge perceptions about visual impairment and to raise awareness for RLSB (Royal London Society for Blind People) as part of its London without Limits season of blindfolded events. RLSB is a London-based charity that empowers blind and partially sighted young people to live life without limits.

The blindfolds - designed by the likes of Wayne Hemingway, Giles Deacon and Julian Macdonald - will be available free-of-charge in Island Grill throughout the promotion. And if nature calls during the meal, you don't have to remove them as the waiters are specially trained to guide you to the loo (of course, this is optional).

Guests will have the chance to experience dining with heightened senses of touch, taste and smell, while enjoying sustainable modern European dishes such as: House-smoked Salmon with Chargrilled Sourdough, Dill, Shallots, Baby Capers & Horseradish Cream; Moroccan Spiced Lamb with Baba Ganoush & Roasted Cauliflower Tabbouleh; or Honeycomb Panna Cotta with Chocolate & Honeycomb, made using the honey harvested from the hotel’s own rooftop bees.

Lancaster London, Lancaster Terrace, London W2 2TY, reservations on 020 7551 6000 or visit
