Eating on a table that contains Chametz:[1]

It is forbidden to eat on the same table as the gentile who is eating Chametz. This applies even if one will be eating on a different tablecloth. [Accordingly, when eating on a park picnic table, one may not eat on the table while a gentile is eating Chametz there even if the table is very long and one is on the opposite side. Certainly, one may not eat there while there are Chametz leftovers on the table.[2]]
