A new restaurant for solo diners only is set to open this month, amid claims it is the first site to establish such a rule.
Eenmaal, in Amsterdam, which started as a 10-cover pop-up, claims to be the first restaurant in the world to offer only tables for one. Founder Marina Van Goor reportedly has plans to bring the concept to London, and other European cities if the initial site is successful, according to the Independent today.
The new site will offer a fixed menu at €35 (£29) and offers diners one-person options, such as smaller bottles of champagne.
Translated from the Dutch, "Een Maal" means both "one time" and "one meal", and Van Goor has said she hopes to break the taboo that exists around eating alone in restaurants, having already tested the idea as a pop-up and as a festival concept at last year's The Rolling Kitchen festival in Amsterdam.
