DOINS at The Fort wants to take you on a unique journey, exploring and heightening your taste buds. Not only will food begin to taste better but conversations and interactions with your loved ones will become a brand new experience. Dining in the Dark is led by our friendly and attentive wait staff that will walk you through your entire evening. You will “feel” and “taste” your way through a four-course prix-fixe meal.

The Fort will offer two tasty options for our guests but keeping the menu a secret to test your tastebuds!
