NEW YORK (AP) - The latest in New York City dining? Eating in silence.

A restaurant in Brooklyn's trendy Greenpoint neighborhood is serving up a four-course meal of organic, locally-sourced food, but isn't allowing any chit-chat.

'Eat' restaurant chef Nicholas Nauman (NAH'-man) says he was inspired to put on the occasional 'No Talking' affairs after spending time with Buddhist monks in India. He says the silence allows customers a chance to better experience the food.

Epicurious.com Editor-in-Chief Tanya Steel says the silent eating experience sounds like yet another facet of the sensory-dining eating out fad. Some restaurants offer diners the chance to consume in the dark.

Other gastronomical joints feature the ability to consume not just the food - but the menu on which it is described.
