Is this the future of fine dining?
Food Ink claims to be the world’s first 3D-printing restaurant where the food, furniture and cutlery are created with the technology.
It’s mission is to explore the intersection between dining and technology-enhanced user experience. According to their stated philosophy, the team is “putting [to] work most innovative technologies, like 3D-printing and augmented reality, in order to elaborate the most exquisite interactive edible experience.”
The restaurant utilizes 3D printers produced by Dutch company ‘byFlow’ to create dishes out of hummus, chocolate mousse, smashed peas, goat cheese or pizza dough – essentially anything that can take the form of a paste.
In recent years, world cuisine has pushed the limits of innovation, creativity and design. Modern chefs now use a wide range of resources, both new and traditional to create unique and memorable meals. And now it seems that the bar has been raised even higher.
The restaurant is open in London from July 25 – 27. Following that, the restaurant is set to visit Berlin, Dubai, Seoul, Rome, Tel Aviv, Barcelona,Paris, Amsterdam, Toronto, New York, Taipei, Las Vegas, Sao Paolo,Tokyo, Austin, Singapore, Los Angeles, Cape Town, Sydney and Reykjavik.
