From fish n chips to caviar, a kiwi chef is running the highest restaurant in the world.

In superlative-laden Dubai, At.Mosphere is now the highest restaurant in the world at 422 dizzying metres above the earth on the 122nd floor of the Burj Khalifa – the tallest building in the world.
Executive chef, Dwayne Cheer, started his illustrious career in a fish and chip shop in Waitarere beach, south of Foxton, before heading to the big smoke of Wellington. He’s worked with Peter Thornley and Rex Morgan on his 15-year culinary journey to Dubai via Sydney and London.
But as of last weekend this kiwi bloke is whipping up delicacies for the world’s rich and famous, rulers and kings who are about to frequent this the newest, tallest, and quite possibly most expensive, restaurant in the world.
At.Mosphere, is located halfway up the nearly one kilometre high skyscraper (828m to be precise) and boasts 360-degree views and cuisine to dent your wallet. Expect Wagyu beef and caviar, Maine lobster and more caviar, hopefully some New Zealand lamb (and Hokey Pokey ice cream), and expect a coffee to cost $12.50.
Yes it’s guaranteed to be a bit spendy, but you are promised to feel special, and that’s all that matters isn’t it?
This is a great story. I love the fact he started in a fish shop;)
