Restaurants are open again, but not really. Venues can only seat a maximum of 10 people, outdoors, and aren’t yet allowed to serve alcohol.

Are you missing the real thing? Us too – which is why we’ve turned eight of your favourite restaurants into Zoom backgrounds. You can use these however you like, but gathering a few mates, ordering takeaway from the same place and sharing a meal over Zoom seems like the way to go.

It’s no substitute for the real thing, but it’s a great reminder of what’s waiting for us on the other side of this crisis.

A heads up: if you’re running your computer on an older operating system, you may need a green background for your custom background to work.
