Irish restaurant closed due to pandemic replaces customers with giant panda teddies

THIS HAS already made plenty of potential customers want to visit this restaurant...

A restaurant in Limerick has developed a unique way to make their premises look less lonely as they remain closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

(Or should we say panda-mic?)

Italian restaurant La Cucina, based in Limerick City are about the only restaurant in Ireland with a full house at the minute as they replaced all of their human customers with giant cuddly pandas!

The restaurant owner took to Twitter to share the La Cucina's new look, writing that she became inspired because the place seemed "miserable and empty"-- "so we filled it with replacement customers".

The panda-stic idea has brought smiles to the faces of people in Limerick and beyond, as La Cucina garnered more than 4,000 likes on Twitter for the cute spectacle.

The dozens of teddies seemed happy out, too-- even if perhaps they just decided to grin and bear it for the cameras as they tucked into beer and plastic pizzas.

La Cucina, like all pubs and restaurants across Ireland, has been hit hard with the pandemic forcing them to keep their doors closed for months on end.

But given that their real menu seems far more delicious than the plastic pizzas served to the pandas, we reckon there'll be plenty of people lining up to try them out once things return to normal.
