Underground restaurants

Not to be confused with secret dining clubs or supper clubs, underground restaurants make the most of below-street spaces. As cities forge ever higher, there are those who instead choose to excite diners with ever more impressively designed spaces and menus that ensure the focus is on the food, not the views.
