Chefs claim that too many people are taking photos of their food with smartphones or other cameras to post them online and are ruining the ambiance and dining experience for others.

A restaurant in Brooklyn is among the restaurants banning photos. The owner told the Times that photo-taking was not only distracting other customers, but also the chef.
