David Martin, chef of La Paix said that “at 50 metres from the ground, Magritte would surely have said: Ceci n’est pas qu’une table!. Dinner in the Sky puts Brussels on the international gastronomic map. It is a unique concept that allows you to be very close to the chef. I look forward to sharing beautiful moments with the guests. It is a magical and surrealist moment where gastronomy and sensations intermingle,” he said.
Pierre Résimont promised a crazy atmosphere whole Pascal Devalkeneer said that its a moment of sharing all together. “It’s a gourmet journey that creates a privileged and one of a kind moment in time and space.”
Isabelle Arpin said Dinner in the Sky was the best place to discover her universe. “It is a unique experience that resembles me. It has this quirky side that goes really well with my way of cooking,” she said.
Filip Claeys describes the event as totally different to his daily work in the kitchen. “Here we are close to the dinner guests and we work in direct contact with them,” he said.
