  Highest restaurant: Dubai's At.mosphere sets world record

 DUBAI -- Integrating two choices, lounge and grill, At.mosphere, the new restaurant which has opened in Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, is perched on level 122, at 442m - sets the world record for the Highest Restaurant.

  Integrating two choices -- lounge and grill -- At.mosphere , The World's Highest Restaurant, can host over 210 guests and features a spacious arrival lobby, a main dining floor, private dining rooms and display cooking stations.

  The new restaurant, spread over an area of 1,030 square meters, is 92 meter taller than the previous Guinness world record holder -- the revolving 360 Restaurant in Toronto's CN Tower.

The Guinness world record for the largest restaurant was set by the Bawabet Dimashq Restaurant (Damascus Gate Restaurant) which has 6,014 seats. The restaurant is owned by Mr. Shaker Al Samman in Damascus, Syria.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the largest revolving restaurant: Bellini, located on the 45th floor of Mexico City's World Trade Center. The restaurant has an area of 1,044.66 m² (11,244.58 ft²).

  "Burj Khalifa has lived up to its promise of being 'A Living Wonder.' The addition of At.mosphere provides guests an unparalleled dining out and lounge experience," Mohamed Alabbar, chairman of Emaar Properties, said in a statement.   

   Atmosphere is a 57-second elevator ride up 442 meters (1,350 feet) that makes ears pop. Dwayne Cheer, the executive chef, tries to limit the number of times he goes up each day.

  "I came up yesterday five times and after five times, you feel a bit dizzy. You only want to come up twice."

  Cheer recommends the house specialties of foie gras or the beef tartare--but prices here may burn the pocket books of all but Dubai's most well-heeled denizens.

  At.mosphere is led by Executive Chef Dwayne Cheer, who brings in over 13 years of international experience working in Michelin star restaurants; and Director of Operations Gabriele Babini with 20 years experience in Las Vegas, Canada and Italy.

   Entrees at the contemporary grille, serving up what Emaar Hospitality's chief executive calls "eclectic, European cuisine", cost an average of 340 dirhams ($93).

The main lobster costs 590 dirham (160 U.S. dollars), while 150 grams of Japanese Kobe Fillet are priced at 440 dirhams (120 dollars). Appetizers will set you back another $50 each.

   Reservations have to be booked in advance otherwise the security will let nobody pass the barrier to the Burj Khalifa's lift.
