1. Electronic devices.

Turn off or silence all electronic devices before entering the restaurant. If you forgot to turn off your cell phone, and it rings, immediately turn it off. Do not answer the call.

电子设备

在你走进餐厅之前,请关闭所有的电子设备,或者调成静音。如果你忘记关手机,来电话时你要马上关掉手机,不要去接电话。

2. Seating.

Avoid sitting at the head of a table (where the seats are fewest) unless you are a distinguished guest. Don’t be the first to sit down, and when adjusting your chair, make sure to pick the chair up and move it in gently, rather than pulling it along the ground.

坐位

除非你是对方请来的贵宾,否则不要坐在桌子的最里头(里面的座位数量比较少)。不要第一个座下,如果你要挪动椅子的话,一定要把椅子搬起来、轻轻地搬动它,不要把它放在地面时推着走。

3. Posture.

When seated, make sure that you are no farther than eight inches away from the table. Your legs should not be extended, so as to respect the personal space of others. Forearms can either be placed on the table or in your lap. Always sit up straight.

Make sure that all others at the table are seated and served before you begin eating.

开吃之前…

在你开始吃东西之前,要确保其他人都已经就座而且也开始吃了。

As a rule of thumb, silverware/utensils should be used in an outside-in order. When finished with a dish, find a place on that dish to neatly set your used utensils. Do not recycle these utensils if there are more arranged for you.

银质餐具

一般来说,银质的餐具(刀叉等),应该按照从外往里的顺序使用。吃完一道菜之后,在那道菜的盘子(或碗)里找个地方整齐地摆放你用过的餐具。如果餐具足够用时,请不要重复使用一套餐具。

6. Eat, then talk.

A big no-no at formal dinner is talking while eating. Make sure that you finish the food in your mouth before communicating with others.

先吃饭再讲话

在正式的餐会上的一大禁忌就是边吃边说,你在和别人交谈之间一定要先把嘴里的食物咽下去。

7. Being courteous.

Always thank the wait staff and cook (if present at the table) for a job well done. If you need to leave the table, excuse yourself from the group or at least with the peop
