TRIAL SOLUTION, ROUND 2:
The same set-up was rotated 90 degrees. The idea was that no one would be stuck sitting next to the wall, need to get out, but have to make the person next to them move first (or go get their refill FOR them). In this case, the width of the nook was not wide enough for a table big enough for two people to sit side-by-side on a bench on the back wall and still have a table wide enough for table settings, yet small enough to be able to get in and out with ease. This nook is 5'-6" wide and 4'-2" deep.
