BRUSSELS: Dinner in the Sky goes 2.0 for 2020 with the new generation platform. This is the first time that the new platform for Dinner in the Sky is being used in Brussels.
The new platform has been called Dinner in the Sky 2.0 and is certainly more ‘COVID-19 proof’. Instead of a communal table, the ‘hanging’ platform will host 32 people sitting at tables of 4. They will be served a ‘Michelin starred’ dinner 50 metres above the ground. Tables are separated by at least 3 metres ensuring there is enough distance and they are set around a large central kitchen. Chefs and their teams have more space to move around and mingle with guests.
Dinner in the sky is a considered to be one of the most surrealist events in the international gastronomy scene. The Brussels edition will be organised in the second part of September. It takes place in the heart of the Belgian capital in Place de Brouckere, just opposite the Hotel Metropole. The hotel, an icon of the city, closed its doors earlier this year because of the pandemic.
The hotel will exceptionally reopen to welcome participants for the Dinner in the Sky.
Dinner in the Sky was launched in Brussels in 2006. Since then, the platform has been used not only in various Belgian cities but also in 64 different countries around the world.
For this edition, 10 Belgian chefs are taking part. These are Yves Mattagne (Sea Grill**), David Martin (La Paix**), Pierre Résimont (L’Eau Vive**), Bart De Pooter (De Pastorale**), Alexandre Dionisio (La Villa in the Sky*), Karen Torosyan (Bozar Restaurant*), Isabelle Arpin (Isabelle Arpin), Giovanni Bruno (Senzanome*), Luigi Ciciriello (La Truffe Noire*) et Alain Bianchin (Alain Bianchin*).
Dinner in the Sky is held from Wednesday 16 September to Monday 28 September. There will be three sessions each day at noon, 7pm and 9pm. The price per person (all inclusive) is EUR 295.
