For the host, you should arrive 30 minutes early. See Table menu arrangement and payment of the invoice. You are obliged to pay the bill when you invited your customers.
Do not eat bread or anything, unless your guest has arrived. The table should be as flawless as ever.
Ask your guests, only if you have all the food ordered in advance in the first order. If your guests prefer snacks your order also.
If you are not hungry, order something light. Let your guests to eat alone.
Avoid ordering exotic food. I prefer those who trusted and easy to eat with a knife and fork.
Eat only when everyone was served. If the food of his client was previously delivered, encourage him to start with the food, before it gets cold.
Chew carefully and quietly.
Do not slurp.
No stabbing or see their food.
Place the food morsels in his mouth. In times like these, it is expected that he will speak from time to time, so I never put into their mouths to overeat.
Turn off the phone. Do not, if you make any calls to your customers.
Keep unnecessary documents, keys, cell phone and flavors of the table.
Start with the business discussion after lunch. This time, you can get the items you need.
