Dining etiquette rules for dining at a restaurant
These dining etiquette will tell you and teach you how you should behave when you are for an outing.
The host must pay always.
Well, it is the tricky part. If you are inviting someone as a host, then you must pay the bill for the whole people no matter what is your gender. Yes, it is your duty. And try to think if the male guest asks you to pay the bill, then you will have the choice to pay it, or you can get up and give on another desk. It is the best way so that it works on the men as well. It is the refined way of paying the bill.
The most important thing is that you should not fight on the matter of paying the bill while you are out. If the male guest insists the women again and again, then the women should let him go for it instead of fighting with him.
One must think to recollect where the plates and the glasses go.
You must try to recollect the BMW rule. Here BMW stands for the Bread, the Meal, and the water. You must place the bread on the left-hand side and that too along with the butter plate. Your meal is always in the middle, and the water is still on the right side of your sitting position on the table.
Always place the napkin on your lap before you begin to eat the meal.
As soon as you sit, you must place the napkin on the lap. The crease of it must be close to you and make sure that your towel is half folded. If you want to leave the table temporarily for some reasons, then you can place the same tissue on the chair that signals that you will come back soon. It will not look good if you wear it around your neck.
Do not put the purse, keys, and your cell phone on your table.
It is common sense. It will keep on distracting you, your dining companion, and the waiter who is finding a place to serve your food. Even it will disturb the whole restaurant. So, I think these smalls things you must keep in your mind while eating.
When you need something, then you must ask the person sitting near to you to pass it.
Do not stretch your arms too long for trying to reach something that is across your table. It might act like you are foolish to pick up things like that way. The people sitting around would not develop an excellent impression regarding you. Alternate to this act, you can go for asking the person near to you to pass on to you.
Chew your food by closing your mouth.
You must always remember one thing, and that is eating small bites and that too slowly. It will make your mouth look stuffed. After you have taken a bit, place the fork and the knife down. Chew your food slowly and correctly. Place the head of the crotch down to the surface of the plate. Do not speak out while you are eating something. When you slurp and smack the food, then that means you are making a big mistake. It will show the lousy table manner signs.
Try to bring your food from the plate to your face. Not the face to the food in the dish.
Avoid your habit of leaning the food into your mouth only at a distance of 6 inches and be careful to bend over it. Try to sit in the straight position and balance your single bite on the spoon or the fork and hence bring to your mouth directly. Also, you must not drink directly from the soup bowl.
