One who has lost an immediate relative, requiring mourning, enters into a state called aninut between the death and the burial. The living relative is called an onen.

An onen is not allowed to eat meat or drink wine, other than on Shabbat and Yom Tov, and does not eat at a table normally used for eating.

(Code of Jewish Law Yoreh Deah 341:1)

Have a good day,
