It's a bird, it's a plane...it's a flying grilled cheese sandwich?! That's right! A pop-up that delivers grilled cheese sandwiches via parachute is coming to New York City.
The flying sandwiches will be sold the first week of September through a pop-up restaurant called Jafflechutes that will set up shop at The Diamond bar in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
Parachuting grilled cheeses are the brainchild of Australian duo David McDonald and Adam Grant, who ran a similar succesful pop-up concept in Melbourne. In Australia, toasted sandwiches are called jaffles, hence the name of their business.
The concept is simple: customers are instructed to follow Jafflechutes on social media to find out when the sandwiches will be delivered, then they must pay for their order via PayPal, stand at a spot marked with an "X" and catch their flying grilled cheeses.
Follow Jafflechutes on Twitter and Facebook to snag your very own parachuting grilled cheese. In the meantime, check out this cool video of Jafflechutes in action:
Now a three-Michelin-star restaurant, Noma has changed, but not necessarily on the plate. According to Kenneth Foong, it's all about the way the team works, which is closer to a tech company than a traditional restaurant. Read our exclusive interview with Noma's head chef.
