Restaurants Want A Ban On People Using Instagram At Dinner
Restaurants are starting to crack down on customers who insist on photographing their food. Several restaurants in Manhattan have banned customers from taking photos of their food, claiming that it “totally disrupts the ambiance.”
When asked what happens if anyone is caught snapping pics, one of the restaurant owners said, “We get on top of those folks right away or else it’s like a circus.”
The restaurants claim that taking photos is distracting for ‘who you’re with’, ‘the other diners’ and the ‘chef.’ There are also some restaurants that don’t ban photos, but have a policy against using flashes.
