Humans can't live without food. But as our species evolve, humans are learning that what they really can't live without is posting a picture of the food they eat. #Pancakes. 
This photo essay turns the camera the other way to portray the people behind all those beautifully composed food. The chefs, cooks, servers and patrons that make the restaurant business a business. Shot over a couple of years in San Francisco as part of the now defunct "No Salad as a Meal" food blog. May it rest in peace.
