Haute Cuisine as Festival in the Sky takes Edinburgh diners to new heights
- The List
- 10 June 2010
Edinburgh Festivals endeavour to take their audience to new heights: and this year they look set to take that idea further still, as diners are invited to eat at a table suspended 100ft above the city. The 22-seat dinner table will be suspended over West Princes Street Garden by a crane, as part of a Festival in the Sky event that has already proved popular in over 30 countries.
Each sitting, whether breakfast lunch or dinner, will last half an hour and promise extraordinary views of the city. City of Edinburgh Councillor Steve Cardownie, festivals and events champion for the City of Edinburgh, said: ‘It’s been a huge hit all over the world, so it’s very exciting for us to be giving the event its Scottish debut. Dining in the sky will be memorable enough, but, with the stunning backdrop of Edinburgh Castle, our World Heritage Site city centre and the views across the River Forth, this will surely be an unforgettable experience.’
