In Hong Kong, where the restaurant scene is revving up after a period of dormancy, diners must pass temperature checks, provide contact info, and sit no more than four to a table. In Georgia, Waffle House locations have closed off booths and will move their lines outside. In Dallas, diners are packing outdoor patios.

As communities around the world eye or even ease into a reopening, how are restaurants and diners responding? This week on Eater’s Digest, Andrew Genung in Hong Kong and Beth McKibben in Atlanta weigh in. Then Daniel and I discuss the biggest news of the week.
