Default Food Porn: Post your food photos here!

I have to confess that while reading about food is a wonderful thing...looking at food is even better.

I wanted to start a "food porn" thread to encourage everyone to take pictures of some of their favorites and post them here to tempt us.

I'll go first!

Tonight my friend Nancy took me out for a fabulous dinner to celebrate my birthday (a little late - we were both busy my birthday weekend). I chose a wonderful new restaurant (Restaurant David Drake) that opened nearby and we absolutely loved it! The food, the atmosphere, the service - all top notch!

Here's what we had:



An amuse of Shrimp and Carrot soup. I got Nancy's portion also - she doesn't eat seafood. Really delicious. Makes me want to go back and try their other soups.





Her appetizer was the Salad of Tender Bibb Lettuce with walnuts, grapes, celery, pear, dijon-roasted garlic vinaigrette. She said it was perfect!





I got the Charlotte of Maine Crab with papaya and cucumber salad, curried celery root remoulade and tomato gelee.





Her entree was the Braised Short Ribs which she adored. It was served with a gratin of sweet potato, surrounded by autumn vegetables.





I got the Deep Sea Diver Scallops which were AMAZING. They sat atop an endive, lobster and scallop tart. There was a carrot-orange reduction and a popcorn shoot garnish.





For dessert she chose the Banana Mousse with milk chocolate cream, coffee caramel, brownie and candied walnuts. It was wonderful, but I think she was too full at that point to enjoy it completely.





I got the Carmelized Apples with molasses marshmallow, creme fraiche ice cream with sweet rosemary emulsion. The ice cream and the rosemary were outrageous! The little balls you see were scoops of apple, topped with the homemade marshmallow. Oh, and the Happy Birthday message was a nice touch.


We both decided we'll definitely be going back (especially since it is only 10 minutes away!)

Awesome pics. Yum. Reminds me of the photographs I took of an 8-course meal I had at Iron Chef Japan's restaurant in Tokyo.

Oooooo....was it Morimoto's restaurant? I'm so envious! (Big Iron Chef fan here--I find the Japanese version more entertaining, but the American version has more foods I actually think I'd like.)

No, it was Iron Chef Japan II whose name escapes me right now. His restaurant was Ariake in Tokyo. I was there as the guest of Panasonic and mentioned how much I liked the show. So they took me there. It was sublime.

Wow! Very cool! I watch Iron Chef America and not the original Iron Chef manly because the ingredients are more familiar to me.

I bet your meal was amazing. I'm envious!

PS that photo is gorgeous.

What a wonderful meal and a such a fabulous friend to take you out for it. Thanks for sharing the photos, I did have to wipe away a bit of drool.

I'm lousy at food photography, but I'm easily seduced by the work of others. The Wednesday NY Times makes me absolutely climb the walls, and some of the food magazines are downright lickable.

Happy belated, SVS! The shots of your celebration dinner are eliciting many groans all up in here at the Boteroesque crib.

Here is my 22 pound turkey. There were homemade rolls, too, and ice cream and peanut clusters for dessert.

Cool

I hate that nouveau cuisine stuff I always get at fancy business affairs --teeny tiny portions on huge plates that I eat in two bites. I'm always hungirer after the meal than I was before and I have to go home and fix myself something afterward. Only a few restaruants around here --even in Little Italy --have portions large enough to satisfy me. Naturally, I have to lower my standards a bit to get gustatory satisfaction.

Thanks for posting the Thanksgiving pic! I just saw it tonight (missed it when you posted it).

I would have asked you to save me a wing and lots of skin, had I seen it sooner, so you are lucky I didn't
