Controversial dome dining event Dinner With A View coming back to Canada

The controversial dining experience that resulted in protests during its time in Toronto is coming back to Canada, and this time it's happening in Vancouver.

Dinner With a View is a unique dining experience where customers eat a gourmet meal within the confines of a bubble. 

The lavish experience has made appearances in multiple North American cities and it's set to pop up at Ambleside Beach in West Vancouver later this winter. 

"Our domes get their inspiration from different regions of the earth and are transformed into terrariums with distinct terrains," their website states. 

"A terrarium is an elegant encapsulation of an ecosystem; a living environment captured in time."

The domes correspond to different regions of the earth's terroir including tundra, tropical, grasslands, arid and boreal forest. 

But regardless of which region your dome happens to be set to, it'll be heated, clear and seat four to six people. 

You'll then be served a three-course blind meal prepared by a celebrity chef and made with local ingredients. 

This exclusive event will be in Vancouver from January 15 to February 16, and tickets go on sale next Monday, December 9. 

Unfortunately, they won't come cheap.

Tickets will set you back about $310 — $199.99 for the dome reservation and $109.99 per guest for the meal. 

Vancouver is the only upcoming Canadian city for luxurious event, but it'll also be stopping in San Diego, Chicago and Washington later this season.
