Good feedback. I like to see a general place setting. Some (Or I should say many) of the midrange restaurants have less than appealing tables and plates, along with less than appealing layouts when they plate them. Macro is the way around this. When you see menu pics of tight shots, it is going to come on a scratched plate, bent-well used tableware with your meal slopped on.

One of the restaurants I bid on, the interior designer was good. Not one direct light in the dining room and during daytime, they had huge frosted skylights. At night, the daylight balanced bulbs were bounced onto a warm-white ceiling. Everything they put on the table from the diner's perspective looked like it does in set-up photo's. To bad that restaurant went bye-bye, the atmosphere was excellent. Food was good but wrong location to hit higher end dining when the majority is established corporate chain restaurants.

I want to find ways to get even closer or inside the food.

Senna's are

A somewhat related food encounter, some time back we were entertaining a guest at a Persian restaurant. In a back corner, there was a lone place setting and the cooks were bringing out dishes. I could see a strobe going of so I was curious. Jumping back, this restaurant had a plain text menu, no pics or anything. So I could understand why they want a few shots of their dishes for a menu. As I'm watching him, on camera flash from the hot shoe, a short chunky zoom and he was pretty close.

Revisiting the restaurant a month later, the new menu was handed out. As you may imagine, hot over exposed images, sharp flash shadows and one of my biggest peeves, an ultra wide zoom lens had been used to show the dishes. The photographer also happened to be eating there and the restaurant manager was praising him for how he liked the new menu.

Another place I make sure I stop at while here, Bi-Rite Creamery. Incredible ice cream with some unique flavors.
This bowl had Pumpkin, Egg Nog, Salted Caramel, and Brown Sugar with Giinger/Caramel swirl.

Bi-Rite Market. Some great organic produce and locally produced goods.
