As we are having the pandemic, the world is currently under lockdown to help stop the spread of COVID-19, some countries already listed and loosening their lockdown measures slowly. This making SOPs have been put in place to ensure that people practice social distancing.
In the Netherlands, a restaurant has introduced “quarantine houses”. This is to help the public ensure they maintain social distancing protocols.
A restaurant in Amsterdam, Mediamatic ETEN is now offering guests their very own personal quarantine greenhouses to sit in while they are served a four-course vegetarian menu. So far, the quarantine greenhouses are only being offered to family and friends of the restaurant’s staff under a trial service. According to the restaurant’s website, all upcoming reservations are sold out.
The cabin with small glasses can accommodate two to three people and it offers a classy outdoor dining experience during these hard times.
Waiters wear gloves and transparent face shields and use a long board to bring dishes into the glass cabins so as to ensure that there’s minimal physical contact with the customers.
Janita Vermeulen, who was invited to a trial dinner with the roommate said, “It’s super-cosy, it’s really cosy, it’s nice and the food is delicious,”.
Serres Séparées’ (Separate Greenhouses) called by the organizers, because they say it sounds better in French.
“We are now learning how to do the cleaning, how to do the service, how to get the empty plates out again in an elegant way, so you still feel taken care of nicely,” said Willem Velthoven of Mediamatic.
