Here&Now Bans on Food Pho­tog­ra­phy

Reader's Digest (India) - - React -

For many peo­ple it’s al­most an au­to­matic re­sponse when eat­ing out: food ar­rives, take photo, post on­line. Only then will they pick up their cut­lery and start to eat. But some restau­ra­teurs have had enough. Var­i­ously, in cities in­clud­ing New York, Toronto and Syd­ney, they have banned food pho­tog­ra­phy en­tirely (even “dis­creet” phone cam­era shots) or banned flash pho­tog­ra­phy. Chef David Bouley, trou­bled by the dis­rup­tion to other din­ers at his epony­mous up­mar­ket New York restau­rant, came up with an in­ter­est­ing so­lu­tion: for now, he re­quires din­ers who want to im­mor­tal­ize the meal to take the plate back into the kitchen to get their shot, and he’s work­ing on mak­ing down­load­able dig­i­tal shots of the night’s meals ac­ces­si­ble to all din­ers.
