The dining adventure at #restaurant Ultraviolet in #Shanghai starts well before the food arrives.
Guests are picked up in a car with tinted windows dark enough so they cannot look outside, because the address is a well-kept secret. The arrival marks the start of an unforgettable dining experience predicated by technology.
Dream come true
Ultraviolet isn’t like any other restaurant. It is French chef Paul Pairet’s ultimate dream made real. Using aromas, air currents, sound, and visual projections the top chef creates a completely new mood for each of the restaurant’s twenty courses.
You are placed in a room with rounded corners, the walls of which form a single, massive, screen. You are surrounded with visuals from floor to ceiling. Breathtaking images are projected on the walls. The optical spectacle took two designers a full year’s work to create.
