Peg on Nose DINERS at Nicholas Nauman’s  Eat  in Brooklyn, New York, can book to eat on a night when everyone eats in total silence. Should a glass break, no-one will cheer. The bill is presented in total silence. The waitress will not ask “Did you enjoy your meal?” You will not speak to your friends, but communicate by raising eyebrows, grinning, frowning or rolling your eyes at the couple by the door who look like they’re having a silent row.

Says Nauman:

 “It’s like when you take a piece of lettuce and you put it against your lips, there are an incredible number of sensations going on that we are not paying any attention to.  And to actually have an opportunity to engage that, to explore that, to just be with that is really rare.”

Chef Nauman seems to have upon the perfect rouse by which to attract the pretentious . Dish up ordinary fare salads and sandwiches and encourage the diners to see them as religious relics. You see a piece of lettuce. They see a chance to engage with nature. A snip at 9$.
