Zen-Like Silent Eateries

Take a Moment of Silence at 'Eat' Restaurant

— October 19, 2013 — Lifestyle
Daily life can be obnoxiously loud, whether it's bustling traffic, chiming e-mail notifications or nagging spouses, which is why the 'Eat' restaurant in Greenpoint, NY is the perfect getaway. The restaurant, which serves locally sourced ingredients, is completely silent. Yes, that's right: you can enjoy a four course meal without uttering a single syllable.

Nicholas Nauman was inspired by the silent breakfasts he had while at a Buddhist Monastery in India, and implemented the concept into the restaurant. The Silent evenings have been welcomed by restaurant regulars thus far, suggesting that people are embracing some much-needed quiet into their busy lives.

While this restaurant might not be the ideal spot for an first date, it can be the perfect place for solo contemplation or an intimate dinner with your significant other. Turn your phones off, zip your lips and stare into each others eyes for a couple of Zen hours.
