Valentines Day is a nationally-celebrated holiday that many people associate with love, romance and gifts. According to the National Restaurant Association, seventy million Americans will celebrate their romance at a restaurant. Previous research by the association shows that Valentine’s Day is the second most popular holiday to dine out, after Mother’s Day.
When it comes to choosing a restaurant for that special meal, consumers’ top three deciding factors are the familiarity of a favorite eatery, a romantic setting, and special menu offerings.
If making the experience pleasant and enjoyable is so valued, why not consider refreshing your dining etiquette to make yourself just as charming and pleasant to dine with as the culinary and aesthetics are appealing?
The Etiquette School of New York has monthly dining lessons that take place in fun and relaxed atmospheres. We cover the different styles of eating, how to properly hold and use your utensils, dining do’s and don’ts, toasting etiquette, and many more of the finer points of dining skills and table manners to help you finesse the art of the meal and make a stellar impression at the table.
Our next class is on Wednesday, February 6th from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Sarabeth’s in TriBeCa. Participants will receive a copy of The Art of the Meal—Simple Etiquette for Simply Everyone by Patricia Napier-Fitzpatrick.
We encourage you to sign up today and make this Valentine’s Day one that you and your significant other will not forget.
