Eating in silence in Greenpoint

Do you like peace and quiet when you're eating?

If so, you would really enjoy "Eat, Don't Speak" nights about once a week at a restaurant with an emphasis on organic, locally grown food called simply Eat, in Greenpoint.

Chef Nicholas Nauman got the idea for silent meals from spending time in a Buddhist monastery in India when he was in college. "We had a silent breakfast every day," he said.

He believes this enables customers to concentrate on what they're eating and to fully appreciate the collage of tastes.
