Things may look different at your favorite food joint once you can safely dine out for a meal. With a renewed focus on safety and sanitation, COVID-19 has more than likely left some lasting changes on the restaurant industry.
Here are some changes EatThis.com says are coming based on the National Restaurant Association‘s recommendations.
Preset tables and unwrapped straws will go. Instead of having your diningware exposed on a table, things will be tightly wrapped, to avoid exposure.
The NRA also recommends that restaurants either make menus which are easy to sanitize, or use paper (disposable) menus.
Other places may nix the salad bar or buffet… Georgia Governor Brian Kemp asks food business owners in the peach state to do.
You may also want to bring a lemon from home for your tea, because restaurants are also advised to stay away from self-service stations, which hold pre-cut fruit slices.
