- No Safety in open Restaurant: Post covid-19, people will be more concerned about safety & it will become huge when they will have to go to an open restaurant to have their dine-in experience where they will have to touch menus, interact with other people, will sit in the used couch, will be near to other people, do the billing in the counter & will have to interact with others also no idea about how the food in prepared inside the kitchen.
- No Private space to enjoy: Most of the time Travellers or general people wanted to get a place where they can freely enjoy or chill-out for few hours with full privacy. When people generally got stuck in a city & have some free tiem to spare.
- Judgement Issue: Mostly couples,party goers or even families get judged/stared by other people in an open restaurant, which creates an discomforting/embarrassing moment for the people who are being stared. This simply spoils the mood to enjoy.
