Some restaurant etiquette is just common sense:
Don’t speak when your mouth is full, don’t tell rude jokes during the meal, and always cover your mouth when you cough.
Others can be a bit more nuanced. Who pays after a business meal? Where do you put your napkin when you stand? And how exactly does one order the perfect bottle of wine?
In honor of National Etiquette Week and our just-published list of the 45 best restaurants in America, we decided to clear up some common etiquette questions.
Patricia Napier-Fitzpatrick of The Etiquette School of New York and author of “The Art of the Meal: Simple Etiquette for Simply Everyone” shared some guidelines for dining at expensive restaurants.
