Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a 22-seater table floating 100ft in the sky. Oh right, London in the Sky must be back.
The pop-up (emphasis on the up) is returning 5th to 15th July above South Bank meaning daring diners will enjoy beautiful and unique views of iconic London landmarks like St Paul’s Cathedral, OXO Tower, the Shard and the Millennium Bridge.
There will be 3 tables in total, each serving an exclusive menu designed by either Pascal Aussignac of Michelin-starred Club Gascon; Robin Gill from critically acclaimed Sorello and The Dairy; or Lee Westcott from Bethnal Green Town Hall’s Typing Room. Those who manage to keep their food down whilst dangling precariously in the air will enjoy dishes like Gascony Pie; chicken ballotine and aromatic lobster served with a bisque sauce (Pascal); one-year lamb merguez presented with aubergine, miso and artichoke (Robin); and sea trout with heritage tomatoes, gooseberry and green almond (Lee). If you turn up on the 6th or 13th July, the chefs will actually be there in person cooking their own menu for you.
So leave the land lovers behind and ascend with your taste buds to dining in the sky.
