New Dining Etiquette by Zagat

Tim Zagat, the CEO of Zagat.com, shared the results of the company’s survey in a MSNBC News video about the new dining etiquette for the Web 2.0 age. Let me know what you think of these new rules of dining out:
  • Women and men should be treated equally, no matter who is paying for the bill.
  • Whoever initiates a dinner date should pay for the bills, regardless of the gender.
  • Do NOT talk, text, tweet, or e-mail at the table and turn off a cellphone's ringer. It is fine, however, to use cellphones when one is alone.
  • It is fine to bring children to most restaurants, but not a good idea if it is a romantic place.
  • Casual dress is more acceptable these days.
  • One should honor his/her reservations. Or, one must cancel them on time.
  • Do NOT overstay one's welcome at a restaurant, especially in a busy location.
  • “Customers are always right.”
