(Newser) – Fed up with giant wine glasses that leave no room on the table? How about excessively classy ketchup? Zagat offers a new list of restaurants' most irritating trends. A few of the highlights:

  • Tables squeezed way too close together. If you're not Lara Flynn Boyle, it's absurdly difficult just to get to your seat.
  • Nonstop wine-replenishing. We can pour it ourselves, thanks.

  • Huge wine glasses. Where do you put your food?
  • Being too cool for ketchup. If you're serving fries, serve Heinz, not "homemade organic red pepper jam."
  • Unisex bathrooms. Not the single-toilet ones—the big ones. No one wants a member of the opposite sex outside the stall.
