    The #Covid-19 pandemic has inevitably taken a heavy toll on #France’s #restaurants. Although some have developed innovative ways of selling their dishes while respecting social distancing rules, most are worried about the huge rise in food deliveries and the advent of “dark kitchens”, which cook food for delivery only. The recipes are easy to make and the cost of production is low. Traditional restaurant owners, worried that “dark kitchens” will eat away at their market share, slam an “Amazonification of hospitality”. FRANCE 24’s team reports.
