Restaurant Inn at Little Washington, located in northern Virginia (USA), in the background of the coronavirus outbreak will put dummies at the tables so that guests do not feel lonely and keep a social distance.
Hotel and restaurant “The Inn at Little Washington” – the owner of three Michelin stars, reports the American TV channel CNN. The Inn is about an hour and a half west of Washington, DC.
For the sake of social distance, the restaurant will be able to receive only half of the usual number of visitors.
In order not to deprive locals of the opportunity to enjoy fine cuisine, Chef Patrick O’Connell suggested an unusual idea with dummies.
“When we had to solve the problem of social distance and halve the occupancy of our restaurant, the solution was obvious – fill it with interesting dummies … I always liked dummies: they never complain about anything and you can have fun dressing them up,” O’Connell told the local media.
The dummies will be placed at the tables in pairs. They will be dressed in the postwar 1940s style (tuxedos and vintage dresses).
Clothes for dummies will be provided by the local Signature Theatre.
The restaurant has already published a photo in its Instagram-account how it will look.
