Dinner in the Sky...Flying High in Montreal!

Fly me to the moon 
Let me sing among those stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars
 lyrics from the Frank Sinatra song "Fly Me To The Moon"

"Dinner in the Sky", a novel dining concept started in Belgium, turned more than a few heads recently in Montreal when 22 dining patrons were spotted, hoisted about 50 meters ( about 160 feet) in the air feasting on a meal prepared by the popular Le Local restaurant run by celebrity chef Louis-François Marcotte. The price per person for this once in a lifetime experience on the "ultimate terrace"..$240 for a five course meal. The event ran from June 1 to June 8 with several sittings per day. Never mind that most would find this too rich for their pocket book, how about the nerves or stomach of steel needed to actually be hoisted so high off the ground.  According to Jean- François Grenier, president of the "Dinner in the", this is definitely one to add to your "bucket list". Would you be up for this trendy dining experience?


  1. Oh my word. I don't think I could do it. The price tags not that big of a deal for a once and a lifetime opportunity, but I don't think I would be able to get any food down do to my nerves.

  2. This is one of my favourite song! I love it!Have a lovely day dear Anna, a warm hug from Trieste!

  3. Looks very exciting~wow! I'm such a wimp, not sure if I could handle the height if it swayed at all.


  4. wow that must be very exciting...I am not sure I could do that...

  5. lemme get rich Anna, and i'll tell you how an experience it was !!

  6. France, that would make two of us! Can you just imagine if it's windy?

    Charia, you have good taste in music. I too love the classic old favourites. Ciao

    Fabiana, it's not so much the height but the swaying motion that would do me in.

    Angie, it must have been an experience of a life time for the fortunate and brave ones who dined in the sky.

    Thoma, can't wait to hear your review! lol

  7. That looks exciting, Anna...but I won't dare try it! I don't think I could eat when I'm all scared being up there. LOL
