Reuters has the story of how one restaurant in The Netherlands " has come up with an idea on how to offer classy outdoor dining in the age of coronavirus: small glass cabins built for two or three people, creating intimate cocoons on a public patio.
"Waiters wear gloves and transparent face shields, and use a long board to bring dishes into the glass cabins to ensure minimal physical contact with customers."
The concept is being tested for friends-and-family at the moment.
According to the story, "Organisers call the project ‘Serres Séparées’ (Separate Greenhouses) because they say it sounds better in French."
Just goes to show what is possible when you try to turn a disadvantage into a selling point. What used to be dinner out somehow has been turned into an "intimate cocoon."
