Novel Restaurant Offers Tables... For One In Amsterdam

Posted: Jul. 3rd, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Novel at best, anti-social at worst, Eenmaal in Amsterdam is living up to the city's reputation for cultural oddities and strange sights to see. Offering up only tables for one, many of which face directly at a wall or away from the center of the room in general, the curious restaurant is just one more thing to check out in Amsterdam.

Most people are uncomfortable with the idea of eating alone at a restaurant. I know I am, sometimes. There’s just something unsettling about sitting at a table with one or two empty seats staring back at you the entire time.

There’s no sense in trying to avoid having to eat alone your whole life, since it’s bound to happen sooner or later. So why not just embrace it and enjoy your meal while you’re at it? That’s the idea behind Eenmaal, the world’s first one-person restaurant that recently opened in Amsterdam.

All of the tables at the restaurant seat one person only.
