It is not a fast food place or a traditional tavern: this one "timed" tavern open to Bologna it is a solution against the limitations of the time slots imposed to combat the Covid.
Time in itself was money, now in the period of the Coronavirus it has become increasingly important, especially for the restaurateurs, forced to adapt to the new regulations on the reduction of seats and operating hours. For this there are those who have adapted, like Antonella De Sanctis and Mirco Carati, the owners of the venue Vâgh íñ ufézzí (translated from Bolognese: I go to the office) in via dei Coltelli, who had the idea of the first timed tavern in Bologna, taking a cue from the past: "We do not become a fast food, but we revolutionize the formula to survive against Covid. Our traditional cuisine and our portions remain unchanged "- they declared in an interview -" To survive the effects of the Coronavirus, which for us have resulted in a drastic reduction in seats with the aggravating circumstance of having a very small room, we have meditated on a real transformation. They told us about an old restaurant in via del Pratello, the Ghiton, where they ate (with collective spoons tied to the tables with a chain) only beans. The longer you stayed, the more you ate and paid in proportion to the time elapsed. The light bulb went on and without betraying our nature and our cuisine, we decided to try an undoubtedly original way that will allow more people (with the same budget, the same quality and the same portions) to dine with us, by booking a time slot and consuming at will in that time frame “.
The timed tavern works in a very simple and clear way: yes book a table indicating the number of people and the weather that you intend to spend in the tavern, starting from a at least one hour to allow the kitchen to prepare hot dishes. The menu consists of nine courses and in the reserved time frame, it is possible to eat everything on the menu, without limits, from appetizers to desserts, passing through crescentine. At the end of the booked time, customers must give way to those who come after them. An hour in the tavern will cost 18 euros per person and for two hours you will pay 26 euros.
