Sublimotion Takes Fine Dining To A Whole New Level

By

Sublimotion, a restaurant that is slated to open at the Hard Rock Hotel in Ibiza,Spain, is creating quite a stir amongst food lovers all over the world. However, the buzz is not for its gastronomic excellence, but for what the restaurant plans to charge for each meal - A mind-boggling $2000 USD per diner, making it the world's most expensive fine dining establishment.

Spearheaded by Michelin-starred chef Paco Roncero, the five-star eatery that will open its doors this summer, promises an experience like none other. According to Roncero, each seating that will be limited to twelve guests, will comprise of a 20-course meal designed to provide diners 'an experience for all their senses'.

Though he will not reveal the menu, a spokesperson for the restaurant hints that diners will wander through a world of sensations that will transport them from the 'North Pole where they will enjoy a cold snack that they carve on their own iceberg to the baroque Versailles where the elegance of a rose is sure to melt in their palate'. If that sounds a little vague, it is. In fact, even Roncero concedes that Sublimotion's concept is hard to explain and says that the only way to really understand it, is by experiencing it.

The world-famous chef who helped design the restaurant and conjured up this 'sublime' concept has been working with his team on developing the idea for over a year. They have spent the time researching and creating dishes that will transport their patrons to a 'new gastronomic level' - Of course, the price in itself is enough to accomplish that. And in case you are wondering, there is no word if the tip is included. We have a sneaky feeling it isn't!

For those that do not have $2,000 USD to spare, but would like to sample the food cooked by one of Spain's most famous chefs, there is hope. That's because Roncero also plans to launch Estado Puro, a Tapas eatery at the same hotel - Built to fit 300 patrons, it may not quite provide the same experience, but will at least keep the diners from going broke.

          I like the line "it may not quite provide the same experience, but will at least keep the diners from going broke." XD yep! Also, I watched the teaser, and everything looks amazing! They eat at a farm, floating, in different countries, and during a storm! (All while staying in the restaurant.) If it was less expensive, like $300, then I would totally go!
