This Restaurant Is All About You Getting That Perfect Instagram Photo [WATCH]

If you are still under the impression that going to a fancy restaurant is all about the food, you are sorely mistaken. You are well aware that the five-star Michelin rating most likely means that you will still leave starving…and broke. But we still go anyway. Why? Because in 2015, you know that the picture you take of your food is going to get a bunch of Instagram likes. And as a millennial in the 21st century, that is what life is all about.

Unfortunately, you’ll have to travel to Israel for the Taj Mahal of all Instagrammable places. As a way to reconnect with the younger generation, Carmel Winery- the largest and oldest winery in Israel- has teamed up Tel Aviv restaurant Catit to offer special menus and photo-maximizing dish ware to amp up your #FoodPorn game. It’s called Foodography. One plate even has a holder for your phone. It’s called “The Limbo,” which makes me want to cry for all of humanity.


Head Chef Meir Adoni designed a five-course meal that caters more to photography fans than food connoisseurs. Although the “food” (I use that term lightly), looks more like a fancy feast for a rabbit, at least you’ll be popular on Instagram. It’ll also run you about $155 per hour. So make sure to snap that photo quickly and head to Chipotle so you don’t die of starvation.

Watch the video below and see how you can turn your Insta game from these blurry looking eggs:

After all, a picture is worth a thousand words.
