No Photos at Restaurants?

How would you feel if you couldn’t photograph your food at a restaurant?  Would you still want to eat there?  I was disappointed not to photograph my food at Per Se, but then it was Per Se, so it was an exception.  I would think twice about eating somewhere if I couldn’t take photos.  I’m not obnoxious about it though.  I just use my phone to take photos and if I can get a decent picture without flash, I don’t use it.  I can see how it would get annoying to other customers if one is there with a tripod and huge lens, etc.  But is it any more annoying than customers having phone conversations?  I think it should be up to the restaurant, whatever its culture/policy is, but I do think that a lot of people want to blog today and that restaurant may miss out on potential diners if they do prohibit photography.
