Art project tries to dispel the social taboo of dining on your own.

If you’ve ever found yourself sitting at a table for two and feeling slightly awkward, you might be delighted to hear that a restaurant called Eenmaal in Amsterdam is starting to promote the idea of a table for one.

Designer Marina van Goor created the restaurant to try and break the social taboo of doing things on your own. Being seen watching a movie, or eating out on your own, often attracts strange glances. Eenmaal is part of a bigger idea to make public spaces acceptable for those going solo, as well as those meeting friends.
