Was at Minetta last night. The hostess saw me taking flashless pictures of my food and came over to ask me to stop ("I'm sorry, we do not permit photography here").
Not sure when this new "no photography" rule came into effect, but it was a surprise to me. I was disappointed. I'm wondering if anyone has had similar experience or is this rule literally brand new? I don't plan to go back as long as this rule is in effect.
I guess this is also a heads-up for anyone else who enjoys documenting food via photography like I do. Add Minetta Tavern to the list of "no photography restaurants". As far as I know, these are: Momofuku Ko, Brooklyn Fare, Masa, and now Minetta Tavern.
Also, the Cote de Boeuf has had another price hike. It is now $140. They really need to update their online menu.
