The owners of Eat in Brooklyn, N.Y.'s Greenpoint neighborhood hosted a full house for its first completely silent four-course meal last Sunday, a pilot project inspired by chef Nicholas Nauman's experience of silent breakfasts during a pilgrimage to a Buddhist monastery in India. "At first it felt like being 50 and married," said 33-year-old creative director Bianca Alvarez, who attended the meal. "But then it became good, the good kind of quiet."
