Food goes 3D at Ubiquitous Chip

Glasgow restaurant Ubiquitous Chip has unveiled an interactive 3D dining experience, one of a series of projects to celebrate its 40th anniversary – and a world first for restaurant dining.

Ingr3dients, which will run throughout March, will feature a digital seascape and Highland scenes, complete with wildlife that will move around and react to diners’ movements, making each evening unique. The aim of the art installation is to bring Scotland to life in the restaurant.

The event will take place in Ubiquitous Chip’s central courtyard, where Alasdair Gray, a respected playwright and artist and old friend of the Ubiquitous Chip team, created a mural for the restaurant when it opened in 1971. Forty years on, Gray has designed a digital mural which will be revealed during the course of every evening. The visuals will be accompanied by a special four-course anniversary menu.

Ubiquitous Chip will open Ingr3dients again in October. Later in the year, the restaurant will set a social media challenge and open a commemorative book of memories.

Ingr3dients runs from 7-31 March. The menu costs £49.95, excluding wine.
