Salt Lake City’s Tin Angel Cafe is once again letting customers discover what it’s like to dine in the dark.
The downtown restaurant at 365 W. 400 South, will offer its annual four-course Halloween "Black Out" dinner beginning Friday, Oct. 26 through Wednesday, Oct. 31 (excluding Sunday, Oct. 28.) The dinner includes four courses, one of which the customer is blindfolded and served a highly-flavorful bite of finger food.
During the "black out course," Chef Jerry Liedtke avoids serving foods that might be considered "too weird" (no eyeballs or calf brains), but he does create daring items, usually served on a toothpick for easy eating. He likes to combine opposing ingredients — sweet, salty and spicy — that have unique textures. One year he served a marshmallow wrapped in a thinly sliced cured Italian ham and sprinkled with a pungent West African pepper. Another dinner it was smoked salmon, dipped in white chocolate and rolled in Pop Rocks candy.
Besides the surprise course, diners also will get choice of tapa, soup or salad; choice of entree (pumpkin risotto with sea scallops or blackened Wagyu New York Steak) and choice of dessert. Cost is $40 per person; wine pairings are an additional $26.66 (for an evil total of $66.60.) Reservations accepted starting at 5 p.m. Call 801-328-4155.
