More No-Nos: Please don’t swoop down on my table the minute we’ve sat down and ask, “Would you like something to drink?” Chances are we would, but how can we possibly know until we’ve had a minute to look at the wine list? Clearly this swooping maneuver is more appropriate for a cocktail lounge where drinking is the point. No one serious about food would kill her palate with a Cosmopolitan before ordering a decent wine and dinner. It just feels rushed so stop it! . . . About my recent rant chiding servers who trivialize the whole dining experience by asking patrons if they’re “still working on that?” Why not try something like this? “May I take your plate?” or, “Is there anything else you’d like?” Almost any phrase that doesn’t sound like something from World Federation Wrestling would be fine.
