Not About Food 20

Camera's in restaurants

I have a general question for the people who take pictures of the food in restaurants. What type of camera do you bring in? In all my dining experience, I've never actually seen anyone taking pictures in a restaurant. I have a Nikon D80 DSLR, Canon point and shoot and the iPhone camera. While the last thing I would want to do is take a picture with a flash, that would eliminate the point and shoot depending on the light in the restaurant because of the lack of functionality. Ideally I'd like to bring in the Nikon, but its a rather large camera like most DSLRs. The iPhone camera is a great camera phone, but still won't do what I'm hoping for. I'm going to Alinea in Chicago in two weeks, o ya in Boston in April and Paris for a week in May. I'd like to be able to take some pictures of the food at all places, but not sure what the most discreet way to do it without disrupting other diners.
