Dining out during the COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t been so simple. Many restaurants had to switch to a takeout and delivery only model, while other have also offered outdoor dining.
Since then, many restaurants have reopened for indoor dining with a greatly reduced capacity.
During the pandemic, my family has had quite a few car picnics. We’ll order/ pickup food and eat in the car or stand outside with the trunk of my Jeep acting as the table to rest our food on.
One Michelin-Starred restaurant in Budapest, Hungary has gotten extremely creative with their outdoor dining service.
Lonely Planet reports that, “Costes decided to serve up its multi-course artistically-plated meals in the private glass-enclosed cabins on the city’s Ferris wheel.”
Eating a Michelin-Starred restaurant’s food on a ferris wheel isn’t cheap (around $155) for the four-course meal. (I actually expected the cost to be a bit higher.) The meal sold out in just a few days for this dining pop-up.
The meal on the ferris wheel was a one day event but more dates are being planned for the spring when it gets nicer out.
Would you be interested in eating a meal on a ferris wheel? I think it sounds like a really fun, unique experience!
