The full sensory experience. I want to eat here!

The full sensory experience. I want to eat here! | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

Dinner at the Shanghai restaurant Ultraviolet sounds like the full sensory experience.

 

Guests are driven to the windowless venue from another meeting spot by two vans. Once seated their 22 banquet is matched with sound effects, light projections and wine (of course).

 

Our full sensual experience massively influences our experience of food and wine, so this sounds like the perfect way to enjoy an amazing meal.

 

I really want to eat here, it's just a little bit far from home. Anyone want to have a crack a doing a pop-up in Sydney along the same lines???

A taste of Petrus & Vega Sicilia at Benoit - NYT

A taste of Petrus & Vega Sicilia at Benoit - NYT | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

Benoit, Alain Ducasse's NYC restaurant, is serving up a stunning range of wines in tasting samples.

 

Is blowing a couple of thousand dollars on a bottle of Château Pétrus a bit out of your budget? Always wondered what Vega Sicilia tastes like? Now you can try a range of blockbuster wines in 1oz (~30ml) samples.

 

A range of wines are kept in a dispensing machine, allowing sommelier André Compeyre to offer a stunning range.

 

If only I were in New York, though the pratice of offering tasting samples is all the rage from Hong Kong to London.
