More than meatballs

The coronavirus lockdown has forced the hospitality industry to pivot. Restaurants that haven’t shut down entirely are operating through delivery, takeout, and direct-to-consumer sales, However, Sweden has a new project that’s already perfect for these socially distant times—a one-seat restaurant. “Bord för en,” or table for one, is an outdoor restaurant located in west central Sweden. It will have one table and one chair set up in a meadow about 50 yards away from their house, meals will be delivered via a rope-operated basket from the kitchen window. Thus, the menu could change on a day-to-day basis, but it will always be three courses that can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The price for the menu is voluntary and each guest decides for themselves. After they leave, Karlsson says that she and Persson will not touch the table or chair for six hours, at which point they will sanitize them.
