‘Restaurant in the sky’ dishes out rare treat in Lujiazui

FINE dining has soared to new heights, literally.

Four Seasons Hotel Pudong Shanghai unveiled its restaurant in the air today, where guests sit around a table 50 meters in the sky.

A table accommodating 22 diners was secured to a platform suspended by metal cords and hoisted into the sky by a crane. Diners are fastened into cushioned chairs, almost as if they are going on a roller-coaster ride.

The hotel’s executive chef, Weimar Gomez, cooks in the middle. A four-course lunch, afternoon tea and seven-course wine dinner were being served both today and tomorrow. Prices ranged from 1,888 yuan (US$303) to 8,888 yuan per person.

“My kitchen is small and tiny so I need to really concentrate on cooking, which seems to be a waste of the nice view,” Gomez said.

It’s the first time such a dining experience was offered in China. Twenty-two restaurateurs in Belgium initiated the idea in 2007.
