Hands free dining

This may come as a shock to a lot of you, but it would seem that some diners find eating a chore… we know. Not cooking - the actual eating. All that cutting up and lifting can be strenuous. That’s what the ‘Hands Off’ restaurant thinks anyway, the latest dining concept where diners don’t have to lift a finger to eat a tasty meal, in fact they aren’t actually allowed to use their hands, even if they want to. Servers will literally lift a glass with a straw to diners’ mouths at their request and will spoon feed them. Who knows, perhaps staff will smile encouragingly at their guest and say, ‘here comes the choo choo train’.

The pop-up restaurant comes from restaurant discount operators, TasteCard and will be open 11-14 June, serving up a tasting menu from partners, Feng Sushi. With tickets selling at £20 per head, all proceeds will go to charity partner, Mary’s Meals. The restaurant is launching to celebrate the new TasteCard app and comes from the Bangkok tradition in which guests are essentially treated like royalty and served by hosts…

Surely, even diners in pursuit of luxury who perhaps have chefs and butlers at home, or diners who are just plain lazy, find the concept not only less relaxing than donning an apron and cooking themselves, but actually extremely odd?

We are sure this unique way of dining will prove popular with curious guests intrigued to give it a try, it certainly sounds like it will be a laugh. Do you think this concept is set to stay?
