Why dining out won’t be the same in Unlock1.0

It’s been more than two months that we are indoors, and most of us are wondering where we will head to once all this is over. We all are remembering, the ambiance at our favorite restaurant, thinking about our next order, and waiting to have a delicious meal in our favorite restaurant. But the hard reality is that as Unlock 1.0 began, dining out is not the same even after lockdown is lifted. It will never be the same, even when we are allowed to eat out again without Covid-19 on our heads!

By now few countries have opened up their restaurants while taking extreme precautions to make sure the safety of their customers. And the same will go for those who choose to open after a lockdown in India. The unlock phase 1 began from 8th June 2020 in India.
