Eater Talks: Is Instagram Ruining Restaurants?

Wednesday, February 6 — 6:30 p.m.

Eater LA is delighted to announce a new live event series. Instagram — and how it’s changing dining culture — is the subject of the first panel discussion at the Ace Hotel. From the clickbait food to the flower wall, social media has ushered in a celebration of sameness, and a flood of free marketing.

How has your feed changed the way chefs and owners design their spaces and menus? What kind of food garners clicks, and can you really experience a dish if you’re snapping away? How has customer behavior changed since Instagram? And perhaps most importantly, is the free publicity worth it when it means a dining room full of camera phones? We’ll tackle these questions and more with Sang Yoon, chef-proprietor of Father’s Office and Lukshon, Christine Larroucau, GM of Majordomo and Eater Young Gun (‘18), and photographer Stan Lee.


We hope to see you there and stay tuned for more announcements on upcoming Eater Talks at the Ace Hotel.
