Alone/Together is a pop-up restaurant concept designed by Gensler during the pandemic that focuses on bridging New Yorkers and getting them back to dining together – at a distance. The restaurant design for Alone/Together is a two-person pop-up dining module, and in its simplest form, it consists of a table for two on the inside, and a perch or drink ledge on each exterior side. In the day, it serves as a bring-your-own picnic spot, and in the evening, it becomes a location for neighborhood restaurants to bring their fare to al fresco diners. When arranged in a continuous line, the module transforms into a seemingly endless table creating a memorable dining experience.
