Dealing with Napkins

Your napkin will be on your plate or to the left of it. As soon as you are seated, place your napkin on your lap unfolded, or half open if it’s a large dinner napkin. Don’t tuck the napkin into your shirt or belt. It’s okay to bring the napkin up to your chest with sips of soup or sauce. If you leave the table for any reason, place the napkin on your chair and push the chair under the table. Watch the upholstery. You don’t want your gravy-stained napkin to soil the upholstered seat of a chair.
