In a clever response to the economic crisis, ‘Basis’ restaurant in Amsterdam is allowing customers to bring their own food into the cafe.

Eating outside of the home in Europe tends to be especially expensive, and seems to have a negative effect on bars who rely on food sales. Acknowledging this issue, the clever bar opened up their policies to allow visitors to bring their own goods and pay for drinks instead. The owners, who have been interviewed for their bold approach to solving the economic issue, have been impressed with the effectiveness of the change. They report that an amazing array of dishes show up in the cafe, and the atmosphere of the space has improved.

A clever but risky move on the restaurant’s part, this approach to the economic crisis is surprisingly effective. Certainly moving outside the box, Basis has really made it work in troubling times.
