When you sit down for a fancy mean, it’s not just a napkin in the lap that’s going to cut it. There are other rules that will help you fit in.

According to Food and Wine

  • Never lift the menu off the table
  • Don’t clink the glassware. The less noise, the better.
  • Keep the rim of your plates as clean as possible.
  • Place discards on the upper left part of the place
  • Keep your bread on the plate at all times unless you are delivering it to your mouth
  • Never say you are going to the restroom. Just excuse yourself.
  • Leave one bite left on your plate. It shows you enjoyed the meal but weren’t so hungry that it wasn’t enough.
