Sitting Times

The following, taken from the January 19th post on “camping”, are typical sitting times for parties of various number:

(1 person): 35-45 minutes

(2 people): 45 minutes – one hour

(3 people): one hour – one hour and 15 minutes

(4 people): one hour – one hour and a half

(5-7 people): one hour and a half – 2 hours

(8+ people): one hour and 45 minutes – 2 hours and 15 minutes

[Notice that adding more people does NOT increase your allotted time substantially– this is because meals are brought out in one gesture, not individually. Account for (a) Menu review, (b) Ordering, (c) Preparation, (d) Delivery, (e) Clean-up, (f) Conversation and Dessert, and (g) Check drop.]

 The bottom line: There’s nothing romantic about two people sitting in a restaurant for 3 hours, doing nothing but cross-table hands-holding, swooning, and talking about the future. I don’t care WHAT Hollywood says.
