Enjoy a Four-Course Dinner on Top of France's Largest Ferris Wheel
Visiting Paris, and looking for a dinner with a view? According to Yahoo, the famous 200-foot-high Ferris wheel in Paris's Place de la Concorde, Le Grande Roue, will be transformed into a sky-high pop-up restaurant for about 400 adventurous foodies on Thursday, May 19.
The lofty dining experience is called "Dinner Amongst the Stars." It comes courtesy of this year's S.Pellegrino Young Chef competition, an annual tournament that seeks to identify the best culinary talent under 30 from around the globe.
Recently, more than 3000 competition applicants were winnowed down to 20 finalists, Eater reports. The young chefs will eventually compete in a two-day Grand Final, held in Milan—but not before French finalist Shintaro Awa gives Parisians a preview of his talents. He’ll be cooking a four-course meal for Thursday’s diners, alongside his competition mentor, Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alléno.
The two chefs will concoct their dishes in a pop-up kitchen, specially installed at the foot of the wheel, and dish them out to the lucky individuals riding in the Ferris wheel’s 48 cabins. Want to be one of them? Reservations are available online on a first-come, first-serve basis for dinners at 7 and 9:30 p.m. (Sadly, solo diners aren’t allowed—bookings must be made for two people.)
