FOX RUN WINE DINNER

Join us for a 5-course meal paired with wines from Fox Run Vineyards. Located in the Finger Lakes wine region of upstate New York, Fox Run's motto is "Drink Wine, Be Happy." We couldn't agree more! Chef Abigail Hitchcock will cook a menu based on what she finds at the Union Square Greenmarket. Fox Run will pair their wines accordingly and give you some education about what you're swirling, smelling and tasting in the glass.

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?”
