A blog about eating and drinking at the restaurant bar (mostly) based in San Francisco, California. Occasionally, there may be a cocktail, cooking or travel related post. We prefer to eat at the bar because it’s easy to get seats, service is great and it’s almost always instant gratification for drinks. Believe it or not, sitting at the bar is usually more private than sitting at tables set 6-10 inches apart.
The blog entries are not meant to be a full review, but are posted to showcase the food and drinks at the various places. In general, we will not be posting about places that we would not recommend so many of the write-ups may be more positive in tone than you would expect from a full reviewer. However, we are not immune to posting about a few glitches here and there. There will be repeat posts about restaurants since we tend to return to our favorite places — use this as a guide to see what’s currently on the menu.
So what’s different about this blog? All pictures are taken with the Lytro light-field camera. The Lytro is the perfect camera for capturing that perfect food moment without bothering others around you with annoying flash bulbs. With the Lytro ‘living pictures,’ you can ‘play’ with the pictures by clicking on different areas on the picture and it will automatically re-focus where you click.
This picture exemplifies Lytro’s living picture capabilities where you can click on the plates in the foreground or on the chefs in the background for different focal points:
