Attention, foodies: Restaurant owners are asking you to stop snapping photos of your gourmet brie cheeseburger with truffle oil-drenched fries.

The days of simply dining and enjoying have changed. More and more restaurant-goers are pulling out their smartphones or digital cameras and taking photos of elaborate entrees and dishes at New York City restaurants.

This growing trend is commonly known as foodstagram, a photo taken on a cellphone and quickly posted online.

I see the complaint about flashes, or standing on your chair (WTH?), but complaining about just taking a quick shot is out of line. If we are going to toss someone for every action that bothers someone, there are going to be no people left in the restaurant.

I don't see the fuss either. Most people are just taking a quick snap with their cell phones. Seems like it would be a little free advertising.

I wish I had thought to take pictures of the dinner at Menton. The dishes were so beautiful, and unusual in size, e.g. the tiny onion Madeleines.

Alina,
My husband took photos at No.9 Park but as I recall they did not look that appetizing. It was the photography/er not the food! iPhones just don't cut it in the food photography realm.

One of my BIL's is a professional food photographer and he's forever taking photos for his stock annuity business, never in a restaurant though. When we were touring some vineyards in Michigan a few summers back, he was taking close up photos of raspberry bushes and the proprietor was quick to inquire if his shots were for business or hobby.
