April 27 was the first day that restaurants in Georgia were permitted to offer on-premise dining after weeks of closing their dining rooms due to the COVID-19 outbreak. In the past few weeks, people hungry for — or simply curious about — a full-service experience have stepped inside restaurants to encounter dining rooms emptied of up to three-quarters of the tables and chairs or rearranged to enable social distancing.

That's not to say pink is the only color—locally made emerald green tiles, for instance, line the front of the bar, amid the riot of hues and textures on display here.
