General question regarding formal dining service?

kwfoodiewannabe | May 28, 2012 06:41 AM

I recall being served at a fine dining establishment (Commander's Palace, I think) with 3 other diners (2 women) where each person's meal was presented simultaneously by the waitstaff.

Can someone please explain why the "ladies first" rule generally invoked, does not apply?
