Era o noapte linistita de februarie, chiar dupa Valentine’s Day si puteai sa vezi o multime de cupluri care sarbatoreau iubirea cu o mica intarziere. Insa cei mai multi erau preocupati sa gaseasca o masa cat mai aproape de geamurile panoramice, pentru a putea imortaliza privelistea minunata asupra Londrei. Tower Bridge arata spectaculos cu luminile lui care se reflectau in apa linistita a Tamisei. Locul era plin si …

Le Ciel de Paris

Following the same path of restaurants in the height – literally, I could not miss one of Paris’s most elegant restaurants. With a name that perfectly characterizes it, Le Ciel de Paris comes with two advantages that personally make me place it among the top restaurants of this wonderful capital: the view and the dessert. Le Ciel de Paris is a semi-gourmet panoramic restaurant located on the 56th floor of Montparnasse Tower. Located at an altitude of 210 meters, it is one of the highest-level restaurants in Europe. Having lunch or dinner at this restaurant is a unique experience that creates memorable memories. You will enjoy a delicious meal while looking lost at the Eiffel Tower. I went there without reservation for lunch, on a business day, and I had no problems in being guided at a table that gave me that spectacular view. I highly recommend you this place, especially if you are passionate about the elegant gastronomy you want to enjoy in a quiet and refined place.   http://www.cieldeparis.com by E.  Mergand in …

Serendipity – Gong by Shangri’la, Shard London

London is no doubt my favorite city and here I discovered the passion to enjoy a drink at the greatest heights. Positioned near the top of the tallest buildings in Western Europe – The Shard – the Gong Bar belongs to the Shangri-La, the building’s luxury oriental-style hotel. It is London’s highest wine and cocktail bar. In Gong I arrived guided by serendipity. Together with my friend M., we supposed for the first time in Aqua, but we got the wrong entry, and this is how fate led us to the 52nd floor of the Shard’s. From the first moment we were surrounded by the lush atmosphere of this place and a lady with long red dress long presented us the place and then she led us to one of the tables. Fortunately we arrived at sunset and so we had an unparalleled view and we could witness the transition of the city from day to night until all the lights were on. I confess: worth every penny. Both vision and for the taste of …

Sweet monday – Tort de Bezea, by Simona Craciun

Interviu Simona Craciun – Owner Tort de Bezea -Cand si cum ai inceput sa cochetezi cu acest domeniu? Imi place sa gatesc de cand eram foarte mica, mi-a placut mereu sa ofer o bucurie celor dragi ceva facut de mana mea, fie ca este o prajitura, o scrisoare.  Mi se pare mult mai personal. Iar cand vine vorba de mancare sau dulciuri, le simteam cumva bucuria din sulfet, autentica. – Care au fost primii pasi? Ai ales acest drum pentru ca iti place sau el te-a ales pe tine? Gatesc si fac dulciuri de mica, insa niciodata nu m-am gandit ca voi urma chiar o meserie din asta. Cred ca foarte multe persoane tin pasiunea sau hobby-urile departe de activitatea zilnica, cand ar trebui sa fie chiar invers. Sa traiasca doar pentru lucururile de care sunt pasionati. La inceput am incercat sa inteleg potentialul acestui business, si cred ca m-au ajutat si foarte tare reactiile clientilor, care erau doar prieteni si cunoscuti. Am primit foarte multe incurajari. M-am lasat dusa de pasiune. Si am ajuns aici.  – …

Lost in the clouds – The Signature @ 95-96th floor, Chicago

Downtown Chicago. Spring. Clean streets, busy people, traffic, but, beyond all, the Magnificent Mile offers the most spectacular sidewalk full with tulips in all shapes and colors. This promenade must include a stop in one of the highest bars in the world: The Signature Lounge. Located at 96th floor of the John Hancock Center and one story above the elegant Signature Room restaurant, this place offers a 360 degree view over the city, including downtown and Lake Michigan.
