My thoughts never stray very far from food. So, this is perfect challenge for me. So, without any further delay (because we’re all hungry), here are some shots centering on the theme of “dinnertime.”
The first two shots were taken at Open House Chicago last fall when several venerable private clubs opened their doors to the public. You can sense the “gentlemanly” atmosphere the minute you walk into these clubs. They both have marvelous views of the Chicago skyline, as you can see in the second shot.
Actually, I don’t even like parties. I would much prefer a room with four friends who sit around and have dinner. I detest nightclubs. And I don’t like places where the noise is so loud you can’t talk to people.~Salman Rushdie
My father was a guy who, because of the businesses he was in – the hotel business, the hospitality business – he didn’t differentiate between the waiter serving you dinner, from the maitre d from the guy who owns a restaurant. Everybody was the same to him. He didn’t look at who you were. He didn’t look at your wallet.~Steve Tisch
Here’s a totally different atmosphere at one of my favorite restaurants in Boston. Believe it or not, it’s in a courtyard of the Museum of Fine Arts. Where else can you eat with Vermeer looking over your shoulder? Notice the magnificent Dale Chihuly sculpture on the right too.
I think of dieting, then I eat pizza.~Lara Stone
