Serres Sépparées is one of our new dining concepts. With the current situation it's difficult to open a restaurant with limited space. So why don't we add to our location and create a safe and intimate home for partners to reconnect, with the outside world at their own leisure. ⠀ ⠀ Our signature plant-based cuisine will be available for guests to enjoy in one bubbles or in the newly renovated main restaurant. ⠀ ⠀ #gastronomy #smartdining #diner #plantbased #food #restaurant #mediamatic #dijksgracht #oosterdok #amsterdam #sunset

According to the Verdict Food Service, the cabins are built on the public patio of the restaurant to accommodate two or three people, the waiters wear gloves and transparent face shields while serving, and that they also use a longboard to carry dishes into the glass cabins to reduce physical contact with customers.
Mediamatic spokesperson Willem Velthoven said they are now learning how to do the cleaning, how to do the service, how to get the empty plates out again in an elegant way so that people still feel taken care of nicely”, reported the site.
