Restaurant in Tokyo staffed by people living with dementia

This pop-up restaurant, called "The Restaurant of Mistaken Orders", was created to improve acceptance and spread awareness about dementia.

"The restaurant is a stylish and fashionable place where “everything on the menu tastes delicious,” so you don’t have to worry about whether or not you’ll enjoy the mistaken order brought to you. Ever since the restaurant’s first event, staff calculated that 37% of orders are generally mistaken, but 99% of the customers “declared themselves happy,” as well as believing that this concept might really help in understanding dementia patients better."

What a lovely concept.
