forks placed tines down - has anyone seen this? [moved from Manhattan board]

I was at Dona recently - very good, btw - and the forks at all the place settings were laid face down, with the tines facing the table. The waitress explained that the fork was easier to pick up that way. (I didn't think so.) Has anyone seen this place setting trend elsewhere? I also saw it at Cafe Gray. Assuming it is some kind of European dealio? What is the reasoning behind this?
