Have you ever wanted to go to dinner by yourself without feeling awkward? If you answered yes, this is the right place for you.
Let’s face it, eating alone in a restaurant can be an uncomfortable experience.
But there’s a restaurant in Amsterdam that’s changing the rules of dining.
Eenmaal (meaning “one time” and “one meal”) is a fine dining restaurant that puts an end to socializing and allows only one person to sit at a table to eat.
“We wanted to break the very recognizable taboo of eating out alone. I noticed that in society, there is actually no room for being alone in public spaces,” says designer Marina van Goor.
The restaurant is also a pop-up, so there’s no set location, making it even more unique (and I imagine less profitable, just a shot in the dark)
If you think you’ll survive having your cell phone next to you here, think again. The restaurant encourages diners to put those phones away in favor of books or magazines.
So rejoice introverts. Finally there is a restaurant for you.
