While parts of the country may be starting to lift some coronavirus restrictions, that doesn’t mean life will return to normal just yet—especially in the culinary world. That’s why one Washington, D.C.-area restaurant is taking a dramatic measure to make dining while social distancing a bit less lonely—and perhaps just a little more creepy.
The Inn at Little Washington, the region’s only restaurant with three Michelin stars, plans to use snazzily dressed mannequins to fill up its dining room when it reopens at limited capacity later this month, according to a press release. And while the restaurant admits its solution is a bit out there, the owner think diners will be able to have some fun with the mannequins.
