    Bring your own plate, knife, fork and spoon and ask for a discount due to the fact that they wont have to wash the dishes.

    I have seen people bring plastic utensils into a fine dining resto because they can't stand metal ones [​IMG]

    Ask another restaurant guest if you can finish the leftovers on their plate.

    (I was once asked by a group of teenagers at a neighboring table).

    Take home the dishes. When beeing asked wtf you're doing, say you've paid for it. When told the dishes are'nt inkluded in the price tell them there is no such information on the menue.

    After you order keep calling the waitstaff over to your table to switch to something else, embellish with add-ons or modify. They appreciate your attention to detail and whimsical nature. You can count on getting something extra when your dish arrives or perhaps a refreshing shower with a beverage too.

    A.K.A. Steve Martin the Jerk in a "fine dining restaurant":
    "Would Monsieur care for another bottle
    of the Château Latour.



    Yes, but no more .



    Let's splurge. Bring us some fresh wine.



    The freshest you've got.



    This year's. No more of this old stuff.



    Oui, Monsieur.



    He doesn't realize he's dealing
    with sophisticated people here.



    Marie, just stay calm.



    Don't look down.



    Don't look down. Look up.
    Keep your eyes up and keep 'em that way.



    Waiter.



    There are snails on her plate.



    Now get them out of here
    before she sees them!



    Look away! Keep your eyes that way!



    You'd think at a fancy restaurant like this
    you'd be able to keep the snails...



    ...off the food!



    There are so many snails in there
    you can't see the food.



    Remove them! Bring me the cheese
    sandwich appetizers you talked me out of.



    Oui, Monsieur.



    Can you believe this?



    First they didn't have umbrellas
    for the wine, now snails on the food."

    Ask your waiter extremely stupid questions about the items on the menu:

    - Does the ham and cheese sandwich contain pork?
    - Can I get the steak tartar without tartar sauce?
    - Is the steak and kidney pie appropriate for a vegan diet?
