According to The Milleridge Inn, the special dining experience has diners recreating moments from the movie. All aspects of the film should be followed by the diners. Each person will be blindfolded and must remain silent while eating. For diners who complete the Bird Box challenge meal, they “permitted to visit the birdhouse, a safe, well-lit area where they may remove their blindfolds without fearing the monsters.”

Although the movie didn’t really focus on food (except for a trip to the grocery store), the restaurant did have a blank slate for this dining experience. Just as long as they didn’t serve little birds on the menu.
