Forget the London Eye for this month (September) there is a new and more exclusive way to see London from on high. You can have a Michelin starred dinner suspended 100 feet up. From September 12-22 Events in the Sky will operate a 10 day pop-up restaurant in the capital. Five of London's best Michelin starred restaurants will transfer their menus and dining experiences to a unique sky table, suspended high in the air. The table seats 22 guests, with a guest chef, sommelier and waiting team serving from the centre of the table.
Events in the Sky and Dinner in the Sky have successful showcased the concept in 43 countries to date from Vegas to Tallinn. For the London spectacular some impressive chefs are involved: Anna Hansen from The Modern Pantry, Xavier Boyer from L'Atelier, Tony Fleming from Angler, Atul Kochhar from Benares Restaurant, Pascal Aussignac from Club Gascon and Alyn Williams from Alyn Williams at The Westbury.
Each table has room for 22 guests and there is a choice of 'flights' on offer:
Breakfast flights: with a four course with a healthy four course breakfast - beats an early morning yoga high any day.
Lunch flights: including glass of Taittinger on arrival, three course lunch by Michelin starred restaurant and two glasses of Villa Maria wines. Is it the bubbles or is it the rarefied air. We are dizzy just thinking about it. good job there are three separate seatbelts to fasten
That glass of Taittinger again plus a five course dinner by Michelin starred restaurant and two glasses of Villa Maria wines. Starry, starry night...
Taittinger flights: Forget the four course meal - this one is all about the champagne. Guests enjoy two glasses of Taittinger and a selection of canapés prepared by the Michelin starred chef of the day.
Despite the wine on offer there is no age limit but guests are required to be over 1.2 metres tall - which cuts out most of the kids. As you'd expect corporate tables are snapped up fast Hugo Boss, British Airways and Samsung have already used the concept for their businesses. Prices Range from £50 for breakfast to £250 for dinner.
