    At $200 a plate they should be providing the photos! :)

    I'm never really sure while the supposed to be " most laid back people " in the business are " the strictest ", this let's me wonder what they have to hide. Yes, you're right, when they charge such kinds of sums for their " fare ", they should at the least let their diners document the " momentous, and expensive " occasion. ;)

    Lookiing at the photos, I see nothing that justifies that kind of cost. Looks just like the type of food I received last week on a Carnival Cruise.

    I hope you don't decide your food based on photos. Although, I am sure, fast food industry would like you to do just that.

    And caviar on a cruise? That must have been one expensive affair!

    Can't wait for my Google Glass. Unless they tell me I can't wear my glasses, I will capture whatever I see :)

    I ate there a couple months ago. I think it was mildly overpriced for what was served but hardly ridiculously out of whack with a premium dining experience in NYC.

    The presentation was actually quite impressive and the food was delicious. And somehow I managed not to freak out that I couldn't take pictures. They also don't allow guests to talk on a phone in the restaurant. It makes for a better dining experience IMO.

    Also, the food served changes on a regular basis. Photos from 5 years ago don't really mean much relative to what is served today.

    It's all about envy, as always.

    Yes, I have had caviar on Carnival. And Foie Gras as well. But you do have to look closely to find it. But it is there.

    Momofuku Ko usually does not come up in discussion for best restaurant in the world, but The World's 50 Best Restaurants list has the restaurant at #79.

    Per Se is listed at #6. No one is contesting that Per Se is not a superior restaurant.

    I wouldn't especially if I have to pay the tab out of my own pocket at the end of the day.
