“Cocoon dining,” with secluded booths often cordoned off by gauzy fabric or a curtain, is being offered at fine and mid-level restaurants in Chicago and nationwide, including Casa La Femme North in New York, J Six in the Hotel Solamar in San Diego and Restaurant RM in Las Vegas.
“… most of the diners who request the “snugs” at McCormick & Schmick’s on the Gold Coast are business people. “They like the quiet feeling of the room,” says General Manager Keith Jones Sr. McCormick & Schmick’s has incorporated nine snugs into every one of its 54 restaurants nationwide”
WaiterBell Angle: The WaiterBell system is a perfect complement to secluded booths and semi-private dining. Diners receive the privacy they want, and can discreetly signal for assistance using WaiterBell when they need it.
