While Eenmaal offers only one seat per meal, portions are far from measly; for just under $50, patrons can enjoy a four-course dinner with drink. Beyond just the food, though, Eenmaal shuns Wi-Fi and encourages reading of books and magazines to further unplug. Creator van Goor launched the temporary restaurant in 2013 and has reopened for April and May, and single diners can book by emailing the restaurant. She's even looking to expand the one-person empire to the US, London, Berlin and Paris, putting an end to single-shaming everywhere.
Existential to its core, Eenmaal's dining philosphy can be summed up in the words of Jean-Paul Sartre: "If you’re alone and feeling lonely, you’re in bad company."
