Europe’s first underwater restaurant to open in Norway this March

How to prepare for rising sea levels step #1 — learn to dine underwater: And one Norwegian restaurant plans to do it. Dubbed "Under,” the gourmet restaurant — designed to look like a periscope — will sit on the sea bed some five meters below the surface of Lindesnes, off the coast of southern Norway. The half-sunken restaurant’s building is designed by architectural firm Snøhetta, which previously worked on the Bibliotheca Alexandrina. A 36-foot panoramic underwater window at the site should give guests the enjoyable experience of interacting with the food they are about to eat (watch, runtime: 0:51). Cue Sebastian the Crab’s track.
