A trip to an expensive restaurant at least once in life everyone can afford. At the same time get pleasure from the process will be possible only if you will feel confident and follow these simple rules!
1. CONSIDER THE SPECIFICS OF THE RESTAURANT, NOT YOUR PREFERENCE
Of course, if you come to a seafood restaurant and ordered the meat, it may be a disappointment.
Or, on the contrary, in a famous steak restaurant you found a few vegetarian items and I do not understand why around this place so much hype. Order then this famous restaurant, and don’t be afraid to heed the recommendations of the chef in restaurants in the high level is usually not marketing, and really valuable information that will help you to get the maximum benefit.
2. DRESS APPROPRIATELY
If you go to a Michelin-starred restaurant, then it is necessary to dress at least as athletic. Of course, in religious institutions you can even bring a jacket if you really were not prepared for the dress code, but it is better to respect the traditions.
Too dressing up is not worth it — floor-length dresses and diamonds in few places would be appropriate, except that at the wedding or on the red carpet. Babydoll with pants or knee-length dress with classic pumps is always a good idea.
3. DON’T BE AFRAID TO ASK QUESTIONS
You think you’ll look silly, clarifying the wine region or ingredients? Not at all.
To understand the menu, especially in restaurants of Haute cuisine, is not always easy. Don’t try to show off knowledge in food and beverages — sometimes it is a direct way to this embarrassment. If you have a food Allergy, we will speak this moment — in some restaurants, for example, you hated crab can add to Olivier, so do not be superfluous to specify classic is a variation or original.
4. HOW TO TASTE WINE?
Here it is, the most dangerous moment — wine tasting. Usually we do this with that value, like conquering the world. Relax!
– Stay simple: inhale the aroma, to drink.
– In parallel you can continue the conversation — don’t sit there like time froze, and you are performing an important mission.
– Their approval will Express the usual nod is enough.
A subtle point — if the wine you do not like. There are no rules. The only other reason without question to refuse the bottle if the wine smells like cork or mold. In all other cases the decision about the replacement of the bottle depends on the policy of the institution. More likely to succeed if it is a wine offered you a waiter or a sommelier.
5. HOLD THE GLASS RIGHT BEHIND THE LEG
One very important rule that gives you guts: hold the glass only by the stem!
6. FEEL FREE TO ASK ABOUT PRICE, BUT ALWAYS LEAVE A TIP
Interested in the price special offers, if you decide to agree to them. It is not a shame!
For example, the waiter offered you a signature dish — it is quite logical to ask the question, how much it is worth. Shame on the other — not to leave a tip, if you are well served. In addition, if you come to an expensive restaurant, be prepared to spend, and in this sense, of course, much more than a nice gesture — to share the score with friends, rather than everyone will start to count the cost of your order to the last penny.
