Few fine dining chefs or restaurateurs would ever have envisaged a career selling takeaway food, but that’s the position that thousands of hospitality professionals have found themselves in as COVID-19 forced the shutdown of restaurants and cafes worldwide.

TheFork is proud to be helping the sector through global initiatives such as Save Our Restaurants. We have also clearly indicated on TheFork app and website which restaurants are now offering takeaway.

We caught up with a handful of restaurateurs to find out how things were looking in the “new normal”.
