The World's First "One-Person" Restaurant Opens in Amsterdam

They say both misery and good food demands company. With food, it's easy to see why. Eating at a big round table surrounded by people you like is one of the great joys of life. But what if you want to go out by yourself and want to avoid the stares and gasps of onlookers? A new restaurant in Amsterdam would be right up your alley.

The eatery called Eenmaal, which loosely translates to "once," featured a series of small tables, perfect for wearily digging in to some culinary "you" time. At the very least you could chew and look at your phone all evening without worrying about being that annoying person.

Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on your viewpoint, Eenmaal was just a two-day pop up event. If you want to relive the experience of eating alone, you'll have to figure out how to do it on your own.
