Customers aren't always seeing what they're eating at one Lexington restaurant.

And that's a good thing.

Natasha's on Esplanade is experimenting with something called 'Dining In the Dark.'

On Mondays, customers are given the option of a blindfold.

The thinking is that if they 'see' less they'll 'taste' more.

Co-owner Gene Williams says, "(It) really originated in France and Italy in the 19th century as a fascination with what happens with dining when you close your eyes and ears sometimes, but you deprive your other senses so that the sense of taste is elevated."

The meal includes a six or seven course meal made up of 'Kentucky Proud' products.
