Right now for a limited time, restaurants have space. At 50% capacity you can sprawl those papers out and speak about that client merger without a worry of the group sitting right next to you hearing. Here are some tips when dining out:
- Make a Reservation: Nothing says, “you’re important, but not THAT important,” than inviting someone to lunch and waiting for a table. Restaurants book up because of the limited space.
- Review the Online Menu: Don’t spend time wondering around a menu finding out what you’d like. Review it at the comfort of your computer prior to arrival.
- Use Your Fork: Even though our meatball sandwich is one of a kind, sandwiches can get a little sloppy. I’d stick to a dish where you use a fork.
- Phones Off: Have you ever been to lunch with someone that gets interrupted by a text every five minutes? If so, you know the feeling. Stray away from this.
- Pick Up the Check: If you invited the other person, you should pay the bill.
- Choose the Right Restaurant: The restaurant should be busy. It will show your lunch date that you know the good spots in the area.
