    1. Pronounce it the way you think is correct and then when the waiter attempts to politely correct you yell over him, "Thanks Jeevesy, old pal! This is some fine service!" so that your date doesn't notice.

    2. Say it very quickly, but point to it on the menu so that the waiter takes it down without incident and doesn't pick up on the likely mispronunciation.

    3. Begin to sweat and look for something else to order. Something that you love and are more familiar with even if you really want the one you can't pronounce.

    4. If your menu is numbered, you can get away with the old, "I'll have the number twenty-eight..." (Point to it confidently while showing the waiter the menu)

    1. Have a nervous breakdown, scramble out of the restaurant, speed off into the night, and never look back as your date will never contact you again after that scene you just made.

    It's usually in English too. "I'll have the eighteen ounce T-bone."

    If you want to pick THAT type out of a crowd, just look for the festering scabs on their elbows.

    Oh, Packard, you have so much to learn. Reciting the description of the dish to the waiter isn't sophisticated whatsoever!

    Don't worry Zeni you'll probably land a very cultured male partner one of these days. He'll know how to pronounce it, you can just sit there and look pretty.

    Or you could just point at the menu and ask how to pronounce it. They will not cart you off to jail for doing so.

    That wouldn't offer him an opportunity to puff his feathers in front of all his imaginary girlfriends though.

    Don't order in French when you're at P.F. Chang's.

    "yeux de tortue avec sauce de morve" doesn't mean "garnished with carrots".

    Thank you for the upvote, my kind friend. I think this is an excellent guide because this situation isn't all that farfetched. It happens every day.

    I can't pronounce a lot of shit, so this guide will be handy for me. Most likely leading up to step 5.
