Microsoft 8 and Nokia recently teamed up to create a pop-up dining experience in New York City. 'Monkey Town,' was an iconic Williamsburg restaurant that brought together food and film, but it was closed in 2010. Throughout the summer, the two tech powerhouses are recreating the 'Monkey Town' experience with a pop-up shop in NYC.

The pop-up dining experience is held nightly at the Eyebeam, New York's Art and Technology Center. Diners are ushered into the soundproof dining chambers inside the temporary cube and enjoy a six course meal while a series of short films are projected onto the surrounding walls. This fusion of food, art and resurrection of a favorite NYC dining spot is a great way to make an experimental dining engaging.
