A fine dining restaurant is otherwise referred to as white tablecloth restaurant, catering superior services and the highest quality of food to high end or upscale clientele. Fine dining restaurants have formal ambiance with fancier menu, offering wine lists and sommeliers, helping customers with their food and wine pairing. Fine dining restaurants are classy and elegant restaurants with a relaxing and formal ambiance, fine tableware, spotless white tablecloth and napkins, a fantastic view of the place, and with a masterfully prepared menu, personal waiter available, and finest liquors found across the globe. Fine dining restaurants are not places to in jeans or tee shirts, and are not loud places.
Fine dining restaurants usually offer interesting or exotic menu such as beef carpaccio (raw beef), escargot (snails), and foie gras (liver). Remember that the portions at a fine dining restaurant may be smaller than a casual or family style restaurant but with higher quality. For fine dining etiquette, always remember not to put your keys or phone on the table (detracts atmosphere); ask assistance when choosing a wine if you are not familiar; don’t give a desired price range for wine aloud; and make payment arrangements before the meal to prevent awkward check grab after the meal. Don’t flail your arms impatiently when catching the waiter’s attention, you need to raise your index finger to do the trick. If you have guests, allow them to order first and try following the number of courses they order, and there is no harm asking the waiter about the dish if you the menu has fancy names that you can’t decipher.
When you are at the table, enjoy your meal while your napkin is placed on your lap and if you need to excuse yourself to go to the washroom, leave the napkin on your chair, but if you are done with your meal, just place the napkin on the left side of your plate on the table. Once you are done with the meal, it is improper to let any part of your knife or fork rest outside your plate. Always start using cutlery the ones farthest from the plate and work your way towards your plate as your meal progresses, placing your cutlery in an inverted-V position when you’re resting, and placing them at 10:20 position on your plate once you have commenced a meal. Always sit upright and keep off your elbows from the table. For more info about fine dining table etiquette, feel free to check our website or homepage now!Doing Cuisines The Right Way
