When you are invited to attend an interview or meeting at the high end function rooms you have never been to but heard about, you might end up in a panic about your eating habits. After all your boss will be there and it could be the gateway to a promotion. So before going off into a panic attack, here are some tips to drill into the head about what should be done and should not be done at a top end eatery.
Dressing the part
First impressions are always due to how you dress and how you look. So in order to make an impression, get the best of your brands of clothes, jewelry and makeup and shoes to get your suited up for the event. Suits, or at least a jacket of some sort is a must and you can go for your best dress too if you would prefer that. Sneakers and sandals must be abandoned for proper shoes.
Cell phone, keys and purse
Do not put any of these on the table when you sit down. Cell Phones will distract you and the guests when you are having a serious conversation and getting the communication going. If you have your ringtone at highest volume, you will end up making a scene. So either put your phone on silent or on vibrate before you enter the place.
If you are the one organizing the meeting or date at the place, then make sure to figure out how to pay the bill beforehand. Usually at restaurants in Penrith NSW they provide the payments to be paid beforehand or get their waiter to remind you away from the companions. Also the inviter is the one footing the bill.
Do not talk about wine budget
When you are ordering wine be sure to give an idea of what you would like to have and which food you are having and point at a wine that is in your range so the waiter can get an idea of your budget. Do not talk about the pricing at the table at all. Do not go around sniffing and sipping wine like in the movies. When the wine arrives just take a little sip and it will fit in almost all cases. But if you do not like it usually you keep the bottle as it is already opened, but if you do not want to keep it at all then you can explain in low tones to the waiter and explain politely what the problem is.
People take pictures of their food in almost all cases when they’re at one of the fine dining restaurants in Penrith NSW. It is usually not an issue as it shows that you find the food beautiful and want to share it with others. But just take a single shot and do not pose with the food. If you are with a client do not take the picture unless they take the initiative.
Make sure to enjoy your time at the finer eateries out there and not end up picking at food because of your nerves. Leftover food at a good place ends up being a regret for you later on.
