Offering sublime views of some of London’s top landmarks, from the London Eye to the Shard, this September a floating chef’s table will offer guests a dining experience they are unlikely to forget in a hurry. What some may call ‘extreme dining’, London in the Sky combines theme park-style exhilaration with incredible food, cooked and served before the diner’s very eyes.
Being strapped into large chairs (that recline to give you the ultimate birds eye view) and hoisted 25 metres above the ground by a crane may not seem like the most glamourous of options, but when there are breakfast, lunch, dinner and Champagne ‘flights’ on offer from chefs such as Tom Aikens and Chantelle Nicholson, preparing the food up close and personal (they’re harnessed to the central table), it’s definitely not one to be missed.
As mentioned there’s Tom Aikens from Tom’s Kitchen and Chantelle Nicholson of Marcus Wareing’s Tredwell’s to kick off a stellar line up of chefs. Others include Robert Ortiz of Lima and Martin Morales of Ceviche and Andina to add some Peruvian flair, Dan Doherty of Duck & Waffle and Mark Sargeant of Morden & Lea to represent some of the capital’s hottest restaurants at the moment, and Sophie Michell of Pont St, Mike Reid of M Restaurants, Calum Franklin of Holborn Dining Room and Peter Weedon from Newman Street Tavern to offer the ultimate fine dining experiences.
