Conceived by Pairet since 1996 and supported by his long-time back-up VOL Group, Ultraviolet by Paul Pairet is the first restaurant of its kind attempting to unite food with multi-sensorial technology, in order to create a fully immersive dining experience. Ultraviolet project was first presented to the world in 2010 Omnivore Food Festival in Deauville. After 3 years of making, it opened in May 2012, somewhere in Shanghai. A single table of 10, a 20-course avant-garde set menu, 5 senses. Supported by the multi sensorial technologies, each course is enhanced with its own taste-tailored atmosphere, including visual, audio and olfactory compositions. Almost instantly, Ultraviolet wows Shanghai, and has been blessed with passionate reviews from the diners, trade and critics, and described as “the best dining experience ever”.
