It's an interesting phenomenon, as chefs we both feel very constrained about pulling out a camera at the table. Although we love perusing other people food photos, it just seems very strange for us to pull out a camera when we're sitting down to a meal in a restaurant. It's almost as though it pulls our focus away from dining and puts us into a photographic mode. So, although our intentions were good and we have a cute little point and shoot camera, you may be seeing more pictures from markets than you will from restaurants. We'll just have to see how this progresses.
Today we had lunch at Katz's deli and we were able to overcome our inhibitions. The place is so casual and noisy that we knew no one would notice the flash of the camera as we captured the moment. So here it is in all it's glory...the pastrami reuben at Katz's. In this instance, a picture is worth a thousand words.
