It may be a long time before many of us congregate in restaurants. And going out to eat is quickly becoming a far-off luxury for many hardworking Americans.

  • '"[U]tensils may be individually wrapped."
  • "Appetizers off of shared plates may be discontinued."

  • Taking customer temperatures at the door.
  • Reducing the number of tables by half.
  • Disposable menus.
