What Goes Where On A Restaurant Table?

Updated: Sep 8, 2020

Have a big meal coming up? Refresh your memory on what goes where on a table (before you eat your salad with the dessert fork!)

1. Avoid eating someone else's bread

If the table is set properly, bread or salad or any other food dish will be placed to the left of your dinner plate. Your glass will be placed to the right of your plate. You can use the mnemonic "BMW" to remember this: Bread - Meal - Water.
