Dining Q&A: Tales of misbehaving dogs (and thoughtless owners) on restaurant patios

Thanks for joining my every-Wednesday-at-11 a.m. dining discussion, where I’m happy to address your restaurant-related questions and comments. I like to keep the format broad and open; recent Q&As have touched on a scathing restaurant review out of Italy, how inexperienced eaters can learn to dine, and how to deal with a table mate who chews loudly.

Got an etiquette question? Want to know where to find a favorite dish, where to eat in another city, or which restaurants are requiring proof of vaccination? I aim to field those questions, too, occasionally with an assist from some of the smart chatters who frequent this hour-long discussion.

So ask a question below now and meet me here Wednesday at 11 a.m. In the meantime, check out my favorite places to eat right now — and snag a reservation.
