Food Conveyor

Cloves restaurant in Ahmedabad, Gujarat came up with India’s first Techno-Dining Experience. Here food is delivered in covered bowls through a food conveyor right from the kitchen to the customer’s table without any human-contact in between. Customers can pick up their own bowl that has their table numbers mentioned therefore eliminates the handling of food in between by stewards.

UV Sterilized Cutlery and Plexiglass barriers

Mocha and Smokehouse Deli cafe across India are using UV sterilized cutlery wrapped in paper before serving the diners. Along with sterilized cutlery, restaurants have also installed Plexiglass barriers following the social distancing norms while serving clean and hygienic food to its customers.

Nano Disinfection Treatment

Madras Canteen and grill in Chennai uses Graphene-Based Nano disinfection treatment which assures 24*7 anti-viral and anti-bacterial protection to its customers and staff. All surfaces of the entire restaurant including the floors, walls, kitchen cutlery, the counters, food service areas, toilets, lounge bars, smoking zones, and the security area are being disinfected on a daily basis.

Owing to these measures and innovations, businesses have started recovering. Dineout, a reservation and restaurant tech platform, has projected a recovery rate of 70 percent to be achieved in Delhi, Bangalore, and Ahmedabad in the festive reason. It will be followed by Kolkata, Chennai, Jaipur, and Hyderabad with 55 percent.

Details of the movie -- which is scheduled for release in February 2023 -- are being kept under wraps.

Bautista is currently going through a busy period, having starred in 'Dune' and Netflix's 'Army of the Dead' and recently finished production on 'Knives Out 2'.

He is currently working on the third 'Guardians of the Galaxy' movie, and as well as 'Knock at the Cabin', he's also expected to shoot 'Dune 2' and is attached to star in and produce an action movie with Jason Momoa.

The 52-year-old star recently admitted he "almost broke down" when he was cast in 'Dune' because he was so keen to work with director Denis Villeneuve but didn't want to "capitalise" on his friendship with the filmmaker to land his role of Glossu Rabban.

Asked what attracted him to the project, he said: "For me, it was Denis. I really pursued this, because I was tracking 'Dune'. I kept asking my agent, "When auditions would become available? When are they going to release these roles?"
