We all learned it at one point, but do you remember what the proper signal is for showing you are finished with a meal in a restaurant? When you have eaten your fill and are ready for your plate to be cleared, place your knife and fork diagonally across your plate with the handles resting at 4 o’clock.
Another important but lesser known tip? The blade of your knife should point toward your fork and not outward. To have it pointing at another dinner guest is a sign of disrespect.
