I saw this story about a restaurant suspended in the sky by a crane and at first thought it was a joke. Then I thought it was stupid. Then I thought it was brilliant. My guess is you might have a similar range of perspective about this extremely novel idea out of Belgium. The concept, called Dinner In The Sky involves a massive table, seating some 20 people, with waiters moving hither and yon (ok, just hither, the table’s not THAT big) in the middle. While based in Belgium, the table can be shipped anywhere….(some assembly required, monster 150 foot crane not included).
The table has been used throughout Europe at events in Paris and Brussels, but it looks like New York and Niagara Falls are on the agenda. As I say above, thought, the owners say that they can bring the table in the sky to you for a mere $20,000 or so, which you KNOW is going to be big among the Hamptons crowd. Expect to see this one written up soon in the US press (if it hasn’t already). Oh, and if you get the chance to eat dinner in the sky sometime soon, please let us know. And for goodness sakes, be careful .And don’t drop your fork .that first step is a loo loo.
