NEW YORK (AP) — The latest in New York City dining? Eating in silence.

A restaurant in Brooklyn’s trendy Greenpoint neighborhood is serving up a four-course meal of organic, locally-sourced food, but isn’t allowing any chit-chat.

Eat Restaurant chef Nicholas Nauman says he was inspired to put on the occasional “No Talking” affairs after spending time with Buddhist monks in India.

He says the silence allows customers a chance to better experience the food.

Epicurious.com Editor-in-Chief Tanya Steel says the silent eating experience sounds like yet another facet of the sensory-dining fad.

Some restaurants offer diners the chance to consume in the dark. Other gastronomical joints feature the ability to consume not just the food — but the menu on which it is described.
