In order to make guests feel more comfortable while eating, a restaurant in Australia put cardboard stands at the empty tables.
In the Five Dock Dining restaurant, the owner, Frank Angeletta, decided to place cardboard displays for people at the empty tables.
In addition to the displays, the restaurant transmits the “chatter” of the fake guests over the loudspeakers so that visitors do not feel like they are eating in an empty restaurant.
In Sydney, Australia, restaurants, hotel dining areas and cafes can reopen with a maximum of 10 guests.
Angeletta didn’t want his customers to feel like they were sitting in an empty dining room – and apparently he did. So far, people’s reaction to the creative idea has been consistently positive.
