An idea born in full coronavirus emergency. The "locale" has only one covered area arranged in the middle of a field to host one customer at a time. And would you go there?
Typically al restaurant you go to make agastronomic experience, or not to cook, to try something different from the home kitchen, but also, and above all, to spend a different lunch or dinner, in couple or in company. But who knows, once theCovid-19 emergency, what will remain of this last convivial aspect, between tables that apparently cannot accommodate more than two people, which will have to be spaced or even separated by Plexiglas barriers.
In Sweden the restaurant with a table and chair for one customer at a time
Someone has already tried to imagine the after and invented a new formula. A pair of Swedish, Rasmus Persson (expert chef) and Linda Karlsson, will inaugurate a "local" called on May 10th Bord för en (or "table for one") and that consists in one table and one chair, accommodated in the middle of a field in the summer of a Swedish village. The idea of the two is to create the first restaurant Covid-19 free, made completely safe through the maximum of social distance, or loneliness. No other customers, no waitresses. The guest will reach the table by himself thanks to the indications provided above, while the dishes will be served in a picnic basket through a rope connected to the kitchen window. In this way there will be no contact between the guest and the couple who will also take care of wash the dishes twice and of sanitize table and chair well for the next customer.
Seasonal cuisine, inner dialogue and free account
The menu will be composed of three courses, three vegetarian dishes based on seasonality such as the Swedish potato omelette, seaweed cream and caviar, the mashed yellow carrots and ginger, sweet potato croquettes and hazelnut butter and the blueberry pie with gin, frozen buttermilk and beet sugar . The sense of this approach, in the couple's intentions, is to give a moment of pleasantness in which to focus only on food, on oneself and on inner dialogue, away from pc, phone, tv and social distractions. And the amount of the bill is decided by the guest, because the goal "is certainly not to get rich with a restaurant from a table", but to show solidarity towards those who have found themselves in financial difficulties or have lost their jobs due emergency.
