In order to comply with the new rules of social distancing, a cultural center in Amsterdam had the idea of using small greenhouses, usually devoted to artistic projects, to offer future customers of its restaurant a private dining area.
Spaced from each other and installed along a canal, the greenhouses now contain a small round table and two chairs, ready to welcome future customers who may be reluctant to share a meal in a group. .
In order to avoid any "accidental exchange", the employees of the restaurant wear plexiglass protective masks and gloves and serve the food placed on boards which they slide up to the customers, whose role was played by other staff during testing.
“The greenhouses are so small that the servers couldn't even fit inside. So they serve (food) from the outside, they don't come in, ”says Velthoven.
We hope that this initiative will inspire other restaurant !
