This restaurant is for the solo diners - those who want a quiet place to study or to simply be in their own company. Gusto, a family restaurant chain in Japan, remodeled their locations to cater large number of solo diners. A weekday lunch in one of their private booths costs from ¥499 (around $4.61). Aside from food, there is also free wifi and a personal power outlet to charge your gadget.
Oona McGee, writer of SoraNews24, shared their experience on the article:
“We’ve worked remotely from a lot of shared work spaces and cafes before, but never have we felt this satisfied, working from the Gusto booth. The seat was comfortable, the table was big enough for us to use a laptop and eat at the same time, and reasonably priced meals were just a call button away.”
Let’s hope that most restaurants would have solo dining capsule similar to Gusto’s. This would be helpful to the restaurant owner especially if most of their customers are solo diners. Students would really be delighted to study, dine, and charge their laptops as well.
