I stumbled upon this great blog. Great photos, great thoughts. His friend recently scored a reservation to Momofuku Ko (lucky S.O.B) and proceeded to whip out his camera. None other than David Chang popped out of the kitchen and hinted that he would prefer that he didn't continue to shoot. It didn't stop our blogger, though. And lucky for me, because, wow, are these pictures beautiful.
The question is, do you feel that it is appropriate to take pictures of food in a restaurant? Typically, chefs and restaurateurs hate bloggers enough as it is, what with our lack of true food expertise (for the most part), and our amateur palettes. This is the great debate.
It makes me think twice about whipping out my camera tonight when I dine at Central Michel Richard, the lower end version of Citronelle (Michel Richard's famous restaurant.)
(Side note: I'm semi-excited for this meal. Chef Richard is supposed to be one of the greatest chefs in DC (that's not saying much), and Citronelle is supposed to be one of the best restaurants in the country (although I have yet to speak to someone who doesn't feel that the restaurant is overrated.) We'll see. But after reading the above referenced post, I think tomorrow's post will be sans photos.)
