(Scroll down for video) Do you want to enjoy a moment of peace and quiet while eating in New York? Now you can.

Seems like many people are embracing the revolutionary idea of eating in total quite at a restaurant.

The ‘Eat Restaurant’ has implemented a ‘no speaking night’ where patrons eat in total quite.

The restaurant is located in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn. It serves a four-course meal of locally grown organic food, but does not allow any chit-chat.

Eat Restaurant’s Chef Nicholas Nauman said he was inspired to start the no speaking rule after spending time with Buddhist monks in India.

“I spent time in a Buddhist monastery in India, when I was in college and we had silent breakfast every day,” Nauman said. He said that silence allows customers the opportunity to enjoy their food.

“We ask people to turn off their phones and to remain silent for the entire meal,” restaurant owner Jordan Colon said.
People communicate via hand gesture or facial expression.
The restaurant fills up fast during the no speak meals. The price for the 4 courses meal is $40.
