The recent event in Istanbul where anti-capitalist demonstrators took a fast-break “iftar” meal along Taksim’s İstiklal Avenue (on the first night of 2013 Ramadan) raised the spectre of mass urban dining as a socio-political event. You want a table for how many? 1. London table for 1000, 240m: 2008 Mayor’s Festival 2. Istanbul table for 5000, 1200m. 3. Lisbon table for 68,000 17km table: opening of the Vasco da Gama bridge.

And of course our own office is not adverse to flash mob dining…
