Vanity Fair Magazine, A dinner with actress Maggie Gyllenhaal- “Chef Abigail Hitchcock of Abigail’s Kitchen has pretty much cornered the eating-while-blindfolded market in New York with her Dinners in the Dark series. The goal is obvious: to taste, feel, and hear more during dinner."
“Being able to help support, in any way, their education is so critical,” Ms. Hitchcock said. “I think progressive education is so critical. I’m a huge supporter of public schools, but sometimes it’s these cool, progressive ideas that lead to a new way for kids to learn. Having that experience, I know progressive education is an important thing. To be able to do fund-raising for it is great.” - The East Hampton Star
“What really caught master French chef Éric Ripert interest was the New York State Steelhead Trout that Abigail's Kitchen on Greenwich Village's MacDougal Street was doling out. "I never eat anything but Pacific Wild Salmon," she told us. "But, these seem to be really farmed correctly. They know what they're doing." - hamptons.com
“[Abby Hitchcock’s] cooking is like anything you’d want to encounter in the dark: familiar, appealing, with a sense of expansive possibility.”

What Our Guests are Saying…
“Dinners In The Dark forces you to really focus on your sense of taste — and made me realize flavors can be deceiving.”
— Candice Braun Davison
“Dinner in the Dark lit up a birthday. What a charming treat the evening was! Each dish was graced by Abby’s light and discerning culinary touch. And I must tell you that eating blindfolded completely changes and enriches the experience.”
“I would like to thank you for the lovely memories, you, Dana and the staff, had made for our party last night. It was truly a great experience, one that will stay with us for a lifetime. We couldn’t have asked for a better dining experience, the food was delicious (and for sure, kept us guessing)!… On the way home, we all could not stop talking about it and according to the birthday boy, he said he hadn’t had that much fun in a long time. A job well done!! Definitely looking forward to doing it again soon.”
“My 2nd time there and Abby never ceases to amaze, the meal was outstanding and the entire experience was awesome. Food was out of this world, the pairing with the wines and dessert left me wanting to return.”
“Great experience. My girlfriend and I are foodies and wanted to try something different. We were seated with a fun group of strangers. I can’t say enough about this experience. Blindfolded from the first course to the fifth course, tasting, touching, spills, music, laughs, jokes, great food, the textures, smells, assumptions, your imagination running wild and weird conversations—all this comes into play. Ending the evening, we headed out blindfolded, never seeing our surroundings. This was worth the price! Did I say the food was fabulous?”
