A Swedish couple has opened a “COVID-19-safe” restaurant in a meadow with one chair and one table and on Sunday (May 10) the “Table for One” pop-up restaurant welcomed its first guest.
There are no waiters and the food is prepared by chef Rasmus Persson and brought to the table in a basket from the kitchen window via a pulley system.
Persson and his partner Linda Karlsson, who have recently moved to Ransater, which is some 350 kilometres west of Stockholm, came up with the concept for “Bord for en” when Karlsson’s parents came to visit in March.
The couple prepared a table for Karlsson’s parents outside so that they would not have to go indoors, serving them dinner through the window.
Karlsson said the restaurant was fully booked for May, with some sittings available for June and July, and they planned to continue throughout the summer.
She said rain would not stop them and that they had bought weather protection for rainy days.
It is up to the customer to decide how much to pay for the meal.
