There’s uproar at one of Paris’ most exclusive restaurants this morning after it was revealed last night that it’s been serving up nothing but fast food since its inception in the early 1990s. Manger dans L’obscurité was one of the first ever restaurants to latch on to the idea of eating in total darkness. It received rave reviews from some of the most respected dining critics the world over and was praised for being a “taste sensation”. But, unbeknown to diners, all the food was actually sourced from a fast food joint just next door.
One critic, who has preferred to remain anonymous, said “I am outraged. I gave an exceptional review of their ‘fromage fondu’ but apparently it was the same processed cheese that they were using for the cheeseburgers next door. They have made complete fools of us.”
What’s your take on it all? Does it just go to show that restaurant critics don’t really know what they’re talking about? Should the restaurant be punished in some way for charging more than 40 times the price of its next door neighbour?
