London is home to a pop-up restaurant that gives a whole new meaning to dinner with a view. Called London in the Sky, adventurous customers are strapped onto a table that is suspended from a crane 100 feet in the air. The Telegraph's Harry Wallop bravely tested it out. He writes that the middle of table is cut out so that a chef and three waiters — all of whom are wearing harnesses — can cook and serve diners.

Wallop tested out the pop-up at breakfast: For £50 ($82 USD) he was served dishes like toasted oats with green apple and roasted apricot and tea-smoked salmon with yuzu hollandaise. Unfortunately being up so high caused his body to be "frozen into a corpse-like stiffness" which made it difficult to really eat anything. London in the Sky is running until September 21 and features nine seatings (or "flights") a day. Go, watch a video about the experience:
