This year, London in the Sky is literally taking dining to new heights. Diners will be securely strapped into “sky tables” and raised above the impressive London skyline to enjoy an evening of delicious food and drinks.
As if the sky-high incredible experience wasn’t enough, guests will also be treated to specially designed tasting menus from three top London chefs: Typing Room’s Lee Westcott, Club Gascon’s Pascal Aussignac and The Dairy’s Robin Gill.
Interestingly, both Lee Westcott and Robin Gill are afraid of heights, so the project really is throwing them in at the deep end.
Westcott says, “I have a slight fear of heights and I couldn’t think of a better way to overcome that fear by doing what I love and something new at the same time.”
The award-winning chefs have specially selected menus for diners, each adding their own twist to the experience. Westcott says his focus is “all about the seasons” and his menu focuses “on using produce that is in abundance and at its peak.” His cleverly crafted fresh menu also reflects the fact that summertime is his favourite time to cook.
Likewise, Gill says his personal menu for the event has been influenced by the food that is best to eat in the summer months. He adds, “All my dishes are completely produce-driven. Only the best will do and absolute respect given to the producers that we work with.”
Aussignac’s menu embodies his signature French style and reflects his Michelin-starred restaurant located near Farringdon station.
Guests will enjoy spectacular views of London while tucking into their delicious food and enjoying their sommelier-selected wines.
Westcott reveals his dishes will reflect a view from the sky of the beautiful parks London has to offer. He adds, “Imagine sitting up there on a summer’s afternoon, with the sun shining and those incredible views over London.”
Likewise, Gill is using a London rooftop honey in his courgette dish. He says, “It’s absolutely stunning, so floral. I thought the rooftop element was appropriate!”
This year marks Aussignac’s third year of the event and he reveals that each time organisers “are improving the show and the location.” So, if you’re looking for a unique aerial dining experience this year, look no further than London in the Sky.
