And for you, something different

Yesterday after a big client meeting, I had a business lunch at a well-known steakhouse in NYC.

When we sat down, the table was set with white napkins. However, the waiter offered me, the only female in the group, a black napkin.

After seeing my confused face, the waiter told me why. His answer makes sense. I have dined at very nice restaurants but I had never been offered a different colored napkin than my dining partners.

Is this way more obvious to others than it was to me? Anyone know why I got a black napkin?

Post your guesses (or the answer) in comments below. I’ll post the response in the comments tomorrow.
