Eat it, Don’t Tweet It: People taking smartphone photos of their food at restaurants is now as common as salsa at a Mexican joint. Chef David Bouley, of Bouley in New York City, tackles the problem head-on, inviting diners who are snapping photos to come back into the kitchen where they can take pictures of the plates as they come out, rather than upsetting others in the dining room with the flashes and shutter sounds. “We get on top of those folks [who take pictures of their food] right away or else it’s like a circus,” he tells the New York Times. But not all chefs and restauranteurs are as accommodating; diners at Momofuku Ko, for example, are chastised when they take out their phones to capture their meal, and told that there are no photos allowed. Perhaps those averse to the photos-of-food trend should sign up to get a t-shirt that one of the test cooks here at America’s Test Kitchen is threatening to design, emblazoned with the slogan, “Eat it, don’t tweet it.”
