Clients are enclosed in their own glass cabin and served by staff in protective gear

A Dutch art centre has designed a clever solution to dining out while keeping social distancing etiquette during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.

Mediamatic, an arts centre in Amsterdam, tested a pop-up restaurant with each table setting within its own glasshouse.

The glasshouses “create a safe and intimate home for partners to reconnect, with the outside world at their own leisure”, the restaurant posted on Instagram.

The restaurant is currently closed, however it did a test-run on April 27.

“We’ll welcome you from a distance in one of our greenhouses to parley and experience our delicious plant-based gastronomy,” it said, once it reopens.

The Netherlands is starting to ease its lockdown rules last week, with the Government announcing that children and teenagers were allowed outside to exercise and play sport, but must stay 1.5m apart from each other.

On Tuesday, country had 40,770 confirmed cases and 5,082 deaths as of Monday according to its Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport.
