Covering bread during Birkat haMazon


Magen Avraham (Rabbi Avraham Gombiner; Magen Avraham 180:4) recommends covering the bread on the table during the birkat hamazon blessing after a meal.

It seems that this is specifically where one recites a blessing on a cup of wine after the blessing after the meal, since the bread is of a higher "rank" and is more deserving of a blessing. Therefore, one who is not reciting a blessing on a cup of wine after birkat hamazon need not cover the bread.

(Rivivot Ephraim 1:136:1)
