LONDON, ENGLAND--The following six paragraphs are excerpts from a story in Thursday's Huddersfield Daily Examiner:

In Paris, the city of gastronomes, the concept has been embraced enthusiastically.

The restaurant Dans le Noir is packed every night and the owners are opening a similar establishment in London.

And despite the competition in the capital from Gordon Ramsay and Marco Pierre White and a string of celebrity chefs, they are confident of success because they are that little bit different.

How different?

Well, let me not leave you in the dark any longer, unlike guests in the Dans le Noir . . .

Organisations for the blind applaud the restaurant. It has provided jobs for blind people and gives the sighted the chance to experience what it is like to lose one of their senses.
