A culinary, futuristic excursion "to the stars" with the BellaBot
Premiere for the BellaBot service robot at the The5 opening
A complete success for The5: With a glamorous opening, the pop-up restaurant on the banks of the Limmat in Zurich invited guests on a culinary, futuristic gourmet journey through autumn for the fourth time.
Five top-class star chefs presented delicacies specially created for the event to an illustrious audience. Participating for the first time: service robot BellaBot.
The start and first spectacular highlight of a futuristic and delicious series of events in the already legendary The5 in the truest sense of the word offered fireworks for the senses.
The light-emitting «The5-Dome», specially designed for the event, with its virtual show interludes projected onto the dome ceiling for each individual menu course and matching stories of how it came about, inspired everyone from the first to the last minute.
The ingenious creations of the national and international star chefs Silvia Manser, Stefan Wiesner, Patrick Mahler, Cristina Bowerman and René Frank provided unforgettable culinary delights.
A glimpse into the future of star gastronomy was not only offered by the light show and dishes served. The sympathetic, technical service assistants from the company Sebotics also hovered back and forth between the tables with modern grace.
The BellaBots - the service robots - support the service staff, who are as professional as they are friendly, in a conspicuously inconspicuous manner.
'There may have been moments of confusion here and there. Which, however, quickly gave way to real enthusiasm. For some, the BellaBot literally became a photo model and added an extra experience to the opening evening for the guests present», says Thomas Holenstein, CEO of Sebotics. The little service robots have also found friends among the star chefs who mingled with the guests in the "Saal" on the opening evening.
