Not About Food 43

Smile...you're on camera in our dining room!

Many restaurant owners are now using video cameras strategically placed around their establishment in order to watch us eat, chat, move about while inside...When I enter a restaurant I find myself looking around for the cameras, sometimes semi-hidden, sometimes out in the open...so while we're enjoying our stay, 'culinary big brother' is watching. Are you comfortable with this? Should we be told upon entering that you will be filmed while dining or drinking here? Is this spying?
