Immersive animated dining experiences combine cutting-edge animation with fine dining into cinematic dinner theater that comes to life right on the table, and now a new adventure is coming to California.

The innovative 3D “Le Monde” dining experience created by TableMation Studios has already premiered at SLS Hotel Beverly Hills and Four Seasons Hotel Austin, and soon, TableMation’s new experience, “Nya & Ned Save The World,” will be launching at The Culinary Institute of America at Copia in Napa and The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay (both in Northern California).
“It’s an honor to bring our new 3D culinary experience to luxury venues around the world,” said TableMation Studios President and CEO Michael Bickel. “We were at the forefront of tech-driven, immersive dining seven years ago when we introduced the original concept for an animated dining experience, and we are excited to premiere our newest show, ‘Nya & Ned Save the World.’ It’s fun and whimsical, pairing perfectly with the four courses to create a unique instagrammable night out for guests.”
Nya & Ned Save The World
The new dinner show took the TableMation Studio team – made up of animation studios; Hollywood writers with credits including “The Simpsons,” “King of Queens,” and “Young Sheldon;” and Oscar-performing musicians – more than 50,000 hours to create.
The story follows Chef Nya and Ned as they prepare to conduct a cooking class – but, alas, their plans are foiled by the nefarious Dr. Animator. The two heroes then escort their dinner guests on an adventure around the world that concludes at the Eiffel Tower.
During the immersive four-course meal, state-of-the-art 4K projections transform the tabletop into a theatrical experience complemented by original music and character dialog. Ingredients highlighted in the adventure inspire the dishes each venue’s culinary team prepares, which are served in unison with the show by carefully choreographed staff.
The new show joins TableMation Studios’ animated dining experiences at JW Marriott Washington, D.C., New York Marriott Marquis, The Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park, and Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans.
