(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.
