Secret dining in secret locations
Noteworthy for: Reveling in secrecy, you can only contact The Shy Chef by email.
Word to the wise: There is no fixed price for the meal, instead diners are asked to make a 'donation', with EUR 63 being the accepted figure.
For the more adventurous diners, The Shy Chef is one of those clever concepts that will have you talking over other dinner tables for years to come. The idea's simple enough: reserve your space via the website without knowing the actual location, chef or meal. On the day itself, you will be given an address and a time to show up.
A few hours later, you'll find yourself about to sit down with eight complete strangers and, of course, the 'Shy Chef' her/himself. Wherever you end up, you'll be treated to a five course menu with wine, and an evening of unique conversation.
