BMW – Not just a fancy car!

You are out with your boss at a business luncheon.  As you sit down at the table, you begin to panic!  Which glass do you drink out of?  Is your bread on the left or right?  Here’s an easy way to remember:

BMW – Bread, Meal, Water.  As you sit facing your plate, your bread plate is to your left, your meal is in front of you and your water is to your right.

A few more tips:

  • Bread should be torn apart with your hands, not sliced with a knife.  Butter just one piece at a time.
  • Meats are also cut as they are eaten; do not cut your entrée  up all at once.
  • Salt and Pepper are “married” and should be passed together around the table, even if a table mate only asks for one.
  • If you do not care for coffee, turn your coffee cup over on the table.
  • Put your cell phone or mobile device away during the meal, checking it while you are dining tells others at your table that they are not as important as your text message, email or phone call.
  • Finally, when you are finished eating, place your silverware at 4 and 10 o’clock on your plate to signal to wait staff that you are finished.  Your napkin should be semi-folded at the left side of your plate.

Now, relax and enjoy your luncheon knowing that you have followed all the rules!
