A new restaurant in Sweden is taking social distancing to another level. The restaurant will be called Bord för En, or Table for One, will serve only one guest in the middle of a field, via a basket attached to a rope out of the kitchen window.

The Swedish couple thought of such a restaurant after Persson, who is also a former chef, served lunch to his in-laws through a window to a nicely set table outside.

"We should make this available for everyone," Karlsson said they thought afterwards. "It will be the only COVID-19-safe restaurant in the world." Website for Bord för En the same night.

Karlsson has kept the hygiene in check and said that the restaurant will sanitize the table and wash the dishes twice. 
"We want to be able to concentrate on that sole guest when preparing the meal. But also, it is a way for us to be able to control that the guest's experience will be totally COVID-19-free," Karlsson said. 

The menu will offer a three-course meal prepared by Persson and will include drinks by well-known bar owner Joel Söderbäck. The sample menu would include includes Råraka, a Swedish-style hash brown with seaweed caviar and wood-plucked sorrel, and Black & Yellow, yellow carrot-ginger purée with browned hazelnut butter and sweet corn croquettes.

"We are all are facing difficult times and there are people that have lost their jobs, loved ones, or even their mind. We welcome all, no matter what financial situation you are in," Karlsson said.
