Most restaurants now carry a small stash of Black linen napkins. They will never tell you that they have them, but most do.
Why does this matter? Because none of us like getting white lint all over our black pants!
Now, I’m not saying you’ll score every time you ask; but 8 times out of 10 if you ask for a black napkin you’ll be successful. ALSO: if this is restaurant you happen to frequent, and you’re NICE, (and there are no questionable notes about you in Open Table), then that restaurant will probably keep a stash on hand just for you.
See: it always pays to be nice.
Thanks for reading.
