Unusual customers who don’t eat or talk

As businesses gradually reopened to less than a full capacity, restaurants have found creative ways to serve customers and keep the place “crowded” like normal.
One restaurant in the U.S. state of Virginia recently welcomed mannequins into the restaurant.

Following safety measures, The Inn expects customers at 50% capacity due to social distancing. Instead of leaving the restaurant half-empty, they thought mannequins could sit at unused tables.
The mannequins dressed in elegant suits and dresses apparently to “capture a post-World War II celebrate”, said CNN
The restaurant may not be able to serve as many lively customers as they’d like on reopening day, but The Inn is undoubtedly packed despite situations.
The Inn’s owner, Patrick O’ Connell, mentioned he enjoyed the polite company, even if they just sat there lifelessly.
The Inn specialises in food and also silly antics
This is certainly not the first time The Inn did something to raise customer’s eyebrows – Michelin-star be damned.

The Inn will take reservations, starting on 29th May.

And in Thailand, panda plushies sat at tables alone or joined other customers having their meal.
A clean and safe meal
Whether you’re dining in a restaurant with dolls or ordering delivery, remember to keep food safety measures in mind.
