This has to be the most amazing pop-up I've ever featured on the site. From 12th - 21st September 2014 Events in the Sky is running a 'London in the Sky' dining pop-up above Canary Wharf, where you eat on a giant dining table suspended above the city. (It was featured on a recent Heston Blumenthal show on Channel 4) It's open for 9 services a day, from breakfast to late night champagne, with a series of great chefs cooking. Full details below.
"Launching for the first time this summer, London in the Sky is an open-air pop-up restaurant suspended 100 feet from the ground. Open to the public for the first time in England, the restaurant will welcome five Chefs from London’s best Michelin-starred restaurants to recreate their signature menus and dining experiences whilst cooking in the air.
The table seats 22 guests, with food prepared and served in front of diners by the Chef and team in the centre of the table. Guests are securely fastened in before the platform raises 100 feet from the ground and their gourmet experience begins.
London in the Sky will offer diners the opportunity to eat and drink the best that London has to offer, with breakfasts served by Anna Hansen’s The Modern Pantry, and lunch and dinner services from some of the capital’s best Michelin-starred Chefs and restaurants: Benares’ Atul Kochhar; Club Gasgon’s Pascal Aussignac; Angler’s Tony Fleming; L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon’s Xavier Boyer; and Alyn Williams from Alyn Williams at The Westbury.
Each of these restaurants will serve guests a Champagne Taittinger reception followed by a selection of signature dishes (three courses at lunch, five at dinner) paired with hand chosen Villa Maria wines to their guests for two consecutive days during the ten-day festival. Guests will be able to dine in the sky for breakfast, lunch and dinner with Champagne Taittinger and canapé flights in the afternoon and evening for a dramatic night-time city back-drop.
Anna Hansen’s The Modern Pantry brunches will be served every day throughout the festival (12th to 21st September).
