If you like to spice your food with adrenaline, Las Vegas will soon have the recipe for you. Dinner in the Sky will hoist diners 180 feet into the air. All for just $290 per person (before tip.)
Diners are strapped into seats with a six-point harness that sits on a platform that holds two tables. A rotating group of chefs will prepare a gourmet meal while enjoying a delicious view of the Strip. (The site west or the 15 near City Center.)
The four-course meal should take about an hour. There will be vegetarian options as well as plenty of choice for carnivores.
Needless to say, there is no room for a kitchen. The chef will prepare the food on ground level, then finished in the sky with a convection oven on the platform.
The tables make a big O. The waiters stand in the squares in the side of the tables. All told, the platform weighs seven tons.
Any one from a hungry single to groups of 22 can book the table in the sky.
Dinner will be served in May.
The owner, Janeen Hinden, owns two catering companies and a wedding chapel in Las Vegas, is also planning a tapas restaurant at the foot of the Dinner in the Sky tower. So if you are afraid of heights but your other half is into that adrenaline rush, you both can dine at the same time.
Of course, you can sup on gourmet food and see the same view from the Strip on the other side of the 15 at Alize at the Palms. There, of course, you are totally enclosed. Nothing scary about that. And it’s certainly cheaper.
