New England School of Protocol Restaurant Ready!
In this class students will learn how to use good manners at the table when dining out at a restaurant or a special event. Table manners are not just about how to hold your silverware or how to place your napkin. Good table manners also show self-awareness, respect, and courtesy to others. They are important tools for social interactions that will benefit children personally and professionally for the rest of their lives.
Topics include: Invitations and how to RSVP, waiting for a table, how to be seated, speaking to servers, menu & ordering food, how to handle food allergies, proper conversations at the table, using please and thank you, complimenting the chef and waitstaff, and other restaurant manners: staying seated, cellphones, belching, playing with utensils and tablecloth, handling spills, and more.
