Things to do in Los Angeles: dineLA is back, but don’t forget your Manners.

 

 

Hey, Ange­lenos.  Have you ever dreamed about din­ing at Spago?  How about sam­pling the sushi at Nobu?  Fight­ing the paparazzi as you pre­pare to eat at BOA Steak­house in West Hol­ly­wood?  Now is your chance as dineLA restau­rant week has returned.  Hun­dreds of local restau­rants are offer­ing spe­cially priced three course meals for lunch or din­ner, so why not go out and sup­port your local restau­rants and taste some of the food that makes Los Ange­les one of the great­est places to eat in the world.  Make your reser­va­tions today.

 

While you’re out, don’t for­get to bring your man­ners with you.  Din­ing eti­quette is an often for­got­ten con­cept as peo­ple are more con­cerned with the instant grat­i­fi­ca­tion that comes from fill­ing their hun­gry stom­achs.  How­ever, per­cep­tion doesn’t stop at the din­ing table.  In fact, many com­pa­nies test din­ing eti­quette as one of the last steps in the inter­view process.  By using proper din­ing eti­quette, you will look more pro­fes­sional and attain a self con­fi­dence that will ben­e­fit you in work and social set­tings and set you apart from the crowd.
