I was missing my meals at restaurants and was equally curious to see how they roll out the safety precautions. So, I visited a Mughlai chain in Salt Lake with my family and was pleasantly surprised to see everything was quite professionally managed. They had an elaborate but convenient sanitization process in place. Every table had a sanitizer bottle so one didn’t have to ask for one. Even our shoes were fumigated.
I had called the restaurant on Sunday to check out on their menu. Some of the dishes were not available. It left my family disappointed but the quality of food remains the same, which was reassuring. The service was prompt and quick, despite the new norms. Every staffers wore masks and gloves and maintained a distance from the guests. They offered the option of ordering food from the table by calling a number, which I did. It proved easy and ensured safety. The cutlery and the crockeries were disposable, something which you rarely find at fine-dining restaurants.
At the end of the meal, the bill was WhatsApp-ed to me, which was another first. Overall, it was a nice and different experience though I would rather go back to the good old days when you call the waiter and get your dish customized.
