Watch Conan Learn Table Manners at Charm School

Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

Late night host Conan O'Brien is filming his show in Atlanta this week, and last night he got a dose of southern etiquette at a charm school. A far cry from fistfighting at Waffle House, this adventure has Conan learning the ins and outs of table manners from a gentlewoman named Cindy. From polite conversation to correctly using utensils, Conan's skills are put to the test. "Like ships that go out to sea, I spoon my soup away from me," Cindy says as Conan masters the art of the soup spoon. Conan proves to be a quick study: "And when the soup has left the bowl, I cram the soup into my hole." Watch till the end to see Conan quiz children on proper utensil usage at graduation.
