Safer Ways to Dine out in these Top Bengaluru Restaurants

August 16, 2021


Covid-19 continues to impact our lives in various different ways, one of which is our dining choice. After scarfing down deliveries and takeaways for many months, people worldwide are reviving their pleasure of dining out in restaurants. Despite the mandatory measures like wearing masks, regular hand sanitizing and maintaining social distance, eateries, cafés and bars have come up with innovative ways to repurpose their space for risk minimized dining experience.

For example, in last May, in Sweden, Ransäter, reportedly set up a one-person restaurant in the middle of a meadow. It is of a single table and chair and aptly called Bord för en, which literally means table for one. Mediamatic ETEN in Amsterdam launched, an outdoor dining area which has glass pods for two lined along a river, named Serres Séparées. Restaurants have a new challenge with the winter approaching, that of keeping their diners warm. They have come up with heaters and heat lamps. Yurts came up in Colorado’s Breckenridge town and The Envoy hotel in Boston set up igloos on its rooftop for guest to stay cosy while dining.

Closer to home, many restaurants in India, especially Bengaluru, redesigned and repurposed their spaces to suit the newly imposed restrictions including few diners and more distance between tables, apart from the following health and safety measures:

  • Pre booking of tables
  • Compulsory Mask
  • Temperature check on entry
  • Staff wear masks
  • Staff get temperature checks
  • Staff required to disinfect surfaces between visits
  • Multiple Service options
  • No-contact delivery

Many restaurants reopened after lockdown with repurposed layouts, incorporating previously optimally unused open spaces like smoking area, terraces, tents, gardens or at least more plants and fans to their décor for diners to feel safer outdoors once again. Although Covid-19 is still a worry, people have realigned themselves to the new normal and started reviving regular life as much as possible, as depression was one of the negative impacting factors over the pandemic.

The following tips are useful for you to safely dine out while enjoying the time.
