A Manhattan restaurant has resorted to serving diners in PLASTIC BUBBLES as indoor dining is still forbidden in New York City.
Upper West Side eatery Cafe Du Soleil has 16 plastic pods set up on the sidewalk so customers can eat, come rain or shine. The bubbles, which can seat up to six people each, have proved popular with customers requesting to dine in particular bubbles. Owner Nadine Chevreux said: "Our customers love it. "They feel cosy and protected and safe - they even request particular bubbles." Indoor dining is still not allowed in New York City although restaurants will be allowed to seat people inside at the end of the month at 25 per cent capacity.
