While we all know the latest pop-up restaurants worth our Facebook check-in and the perfect brunch photo composition, somewhere along the way we’ve forgotten our table manners. What’s the deal with eating before everyone has been served when service is especially patchy? Is it really the height of bad behavior to snap before snacking?
