Would you have the guts to eat dinner while being suspended 150 feet in the air? Dinner in the Sky was created by two Belgian companies to offer a thrilling exclusive experience. A uniquely designed contraption complete with a cooking station, tables, and chairs is lifted into the air using a crane. The chef prepares the meal right in front of guests. Fortunately, diners are strapped to their seats and won’t fall off. But it still requires some gumption to step up to this dinner table.
Dinner in the Sky has launched more than 5,000 such dinners and graced the skies in 45 countries, including Australia, Japan, South Africa, India, Brazil, the United States, France, and more.
Many of the dinners are prepared by top chefs. At an event held in Monaco, for example, French chef Joël Robuchon was at the helm. And chef Massimo Bottura, whose restaurant in Modena, Italy won the title of the world’s number one restaurant, recently prepared a lavish meal in Teotihuacan, Mexico.
If you’re a fan of truffles, Michelin-starred chef Luigi Ciciriello made an appearance in Brussels to cook up some truffle-laden dishes.
If you’re brave enough to try this yourself, Dinner in the Sky‘s next locations are in Bristol and Southampton, England, with breakfast, lunch, and dessert meals too, starting at 50 pounds (about $65 U.S. dollars). Dinner can be reserved for 150 pounds (about $195 U.S. dollars). Later in the month, it will stop over in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
