On Trend: Pop-Down Restaurants

By October 19, 2012


The popularity of pop-up restaurants has inspired a new trend in the culinary world: pop-down restaurants. Instead of springing up in unused event or restaurant spaces, pop-down restaurants set up shop underground.
One such pop-down restaurant appeared in Finland last month. The unique setting, a limestone mine 260 feet underground, assured that the 64-seat restaurant was completely booked during its existence. The purpose of the temporary eatery was to create an intimate space for chefs and guests alike, free from the distractions of the outside world.

What do you think?  Would you eat at a pop-down restaurant?
