Seven unusual approaches to social distancing in restaurants

One of the first original restaurant concepts to be reported was Sweden’s Bord för En (table for one in English), which opened this month.

The concept is the brainchild of Linda Karlsson and Rasmus Persson, the restaurant is located in a the middle of a field in Värmland. Three-course meals are delivered to diners in a basket suspended on a washing line linked to the kitchen window.

Only one party is allowed per day, either as individual guests or a group consisting of members of the same household.

A drinks menu has been curated by Joel Söderbäck, founder of Linje Tio (now called Tjoget), which featured in the 2019 World’s 50 Best Bars list.

Guests pay what they want for the meal. Dishes are left in a container, and are washed twice after use, while the table and chairs are sanitised before the next party arrives.

Bord för En is located a short walk from the Hembygsgården bus stop. A rope has been laid down to guide diners to the field.
