The napkin gets tucked under the collar, mes amis, not folded in the lap, because this is serious eating . You can't be sozzled and sit at this table, either, and if you haven't finished your wine course by the time the corresponding food course is finished, too bad. Off with the wine. And absolutely no smoking until the cigars and the cognac come out. No talk of business or personal affairs, politics or religion. No networking, no schmoozing.

Participants included Tom Wilson, celebrating his election to a first full term as an Orange County supervisor.
