6. Communal Tables

We’re eating those small plates at bigger tables now. It no longer seems odd to be seated at a long, bar-height table side by side with strangers. This is fine when you’re dining alone or if you’re just plain friendly, but not so ideal when you’re out for an intimate dinner.

Have you tried the communal table experience yet?

I have shared a table with strangers if the place is so packed we can't get our own but otherwise, no.

We have done it several times. One time the people were rude because they got stuck there and the other time was wonderful!! We had a great time with them and i still ocassionaly babysit for them!!

One of our local steak houses does this. I'm personally not a fan but It's ok on occasion.
