My question is this: Why does the Etiquette Dinner only cover the basics for American/European style dining??
It seems to me that sushi restaurants are becoming trendier and trendier every day. Business dinners are being held at sushi restaurants more frequently every day. My friend, Liz Rymanowska, is a manager at an LA Tan in Chicago. Her business partners always conduct their meetings at sushi houses in the city.
Coming from an Italian-American family, I'm used to eating with a fork and knife. When it comes to using chopsticks, proper etiquette, or should I say proper technique, is something totally foreign to me. If I go to a sushi house and use chopsticks, it is normal or proper to place an entire piece of sushi in my mouth?? Or, should I stick with the American style and cut the piece of sushi with a fork and knife??
