Dinner in the Sky
The entire table is suspended via crane 165 feet in to the air with a server at the center making sure you are properly attended to. In terms of pricing, Dinner in the Sky is what one can consider “Are you insane?!” kind of money. $11,400 gets you their services for 8 hours, not including catering which is an independent cost that Dinner in the Sky has nothing to do with.
On top of that, the insurance fees are extremely high; thereby securing the fact that you will probably never be able to afford to do this. Of course, you can always just heat up a frozen TV dinner and then climb a tree…
So, taking this whole dead theme several thousand steps too far, the constructed a restaurant in the shape of a massive coffin. In this massive coffin are yet more coffins; these line the walls along with various other pieces of death-related paraphernalia.
Their menu included such morbidly named salads such as the “Nine Day Salad” and “Forty Day Salad.” These names are taken from local death rituals that are normally involved with a Ukrainian funeral.
Instead of eating food off of a human body, why not eat from inside a human body? When you sit down, a fake human body is wheeled out on a gurney. When you cut in to this fake body fake blood pours out and the internal organs are then exposed. Once you have dissected the body, you can then go to town on the organs which are made of sushi that has been cut in to the shape of kidneys, livers, and various other organs.
Buns and Guns
In other words, its atmosphere is very cozy. "We wanted to create a new, attractive idea inspired from the events that our country went through," said the restaurant’s general manager to the L.A. Times. By this he means that the restaurant was created in the aftermath of a 2006 bombing.
Why someone would want to commemorate such an event with a cool burger joint hangout is, arguably, a little strange, but, hey, Buns and Guns does it very well. All of the food has some kind of militaristic name attributed to it like the M16 Carbine meat sandwich, or the Mortar burger. This DMZ atmosphere is further perpetuated by the stacks of sandbags that line the outside of the restaurant and the constant aural barrage of helicopter and gunfire sound effects that blare throughout the place as you eat.
