There are restaurants that intrigue us, not because of the food so much, but because of the experience. Montreal's O.Noir is certainly one of the most mysterious dining venues around.
This restaurant gives you a glimpse (if you pardon the expression) of what it feels like to be blind, even if it's just for a couple of hours. The experience is unnerving, entertaining and unforgettable. Just make sure you don't put salt in your coffee!
For added mystery, ask for the surprise dish and put your other senses to the test figuring out what you're eating. You'll be surprised how important textures become when you can't see your food. Table etiquette, in contrast, is optional as you decide against using a fork and knife! And for an evening that also tickles your ears, come on a Sunday night and dine while jazz band Les Ombres perform.
