This Dutch waterside vegetarian restaurant is sold out for the next two months after it started offering ‘social-distanced dining’ serving veggie meals in greenhouses.
The restaurant is located at Mediamatic, an arts centre in the Dutch capital Amsterdam, which has launched the ‘Serres Separees’ initiative to “create a safe and intimate home for partners to reconnect with the outside world at their own leisure”.
According to local media, the venue is still currently closed due COVID-19 measures, but organisers did carry out a test run on 27th April.
Once the art centre reopens, diners will be welcomed “from a distance in one of our greenhouses to parley and experience our delicious plant-based gastronomy”.
However, demand is already high and Mediamatic said on its website: “We’re totally sold out ’till the end of June.”
The restaurant said: “Enjoy a plant-based four-course menu in our quarantine greenhouses. Book your own greenhouse by choosing a date and a time slot, from 6pm to 8.30pm or 8.30pm to 11pm.
A ticket for two people costs EUR 100 which is EUR 20 for the table plus EUR 40 for each person. A single diner pays EUR 60 and three people pay EUR 140.
The Netherlands has begun lifting its lockdown measures and children and teenagers allowed outside for exercise while maintaining a 1.5-metre distance from each other.
