Table Manners to adhere to:

  • Place your napkin on your lap before the meal starts.
  • Keep personal items (including your shiny or not so shiny smartphone) off the table before the meal starts.
  • You should wait until all the guests are served and the host begins eating before you begin eating. I’d understand if you can’t wait.
  • Observe and understand the table setting – use the “outside-in” rule.
  • Hold your utensils in the continental style. If utensils aren’t required for this meal, please proceed with clean hands.
  • Chew with your mouth closed.
  • Pass food from left to right if it’s a serve from the bowl kind of setting.
  • When done eating, position your silverware to tell the server you are done.
  • Fold your used napkins and place it to the left of your place setting.
  • Hopefully, you saved some space in your belly for the next visit.😁
