If you thought an airliner was the only venue where a meal could be taken at multiple altitudes, you’re in need of an altitude adjustment. That’s the good word from Morey’s Piers, across the river from Manhattan, in Wildwood, New Jersey.
Throughout the summer season, Morey’s will be offering weekend patrons of its big wheel a chance to double their pleasure with its “Breakfast in the Sky” promotion. For a price of $85 per car with one or two guests, another $40 for each additional rider up to a maximum four, you can sail above the boardwalk and ocean while you tuck into the likes of a shrimp and lobster omelet, steak and eggs, and more. What’s that? You wanted your eggs over easy? Just wait till the wheel makes another half turn and voilà!
The chef, Walter Jurusz, a veteran of the Four Seasons (the one in Philly, not on Park Avenue), is quoted by the New York Post as saying,
I went from white tablecloths to an amusement park. I never thought I’d be cooking for a Ferris wheel.
It’s hard to know the chef’s tone of voice when he so mused, but it doesn’t sound as though he’s thrilled with his current situation.
But you will be if you like breakfast on the go. And as long as you’re 60 inches tall or accompanied by an adult.
The wheel is advertised as moving at a more leisurely pace during the breakfast run, presumably so that patrons can keep their eggs down as the wheel goes up. The ride cum breakfast lasts about an hour.
Reservations are a must. For a schedule of ride days and further information, call 609-522-3900 or click here.
