Hit Us With Your Best Shot: The Resto Week Photo Contest is Back!

First and foremost, happy Restaurant Week everyone!

It’s that time again…the Restaurant Week Food Photo Contest is back! Last year’s contest was so much fun that we’re doing it again. This Winter Restaurant Week, if you fancy yourself an amateur food photographer (or even if you don’t!), make sure you grab your camera or your phone when you head out for your Restaurant Week feast so you can take part in the photographic fun.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Go out for a meal anywhere in Boston or its surrounding cities and order something from a Restaurant Week menu.
  2. Take a photo of your meal – doesn’t have to be professional, just your idea of a good food photo.
  3. Send the photo to us – Tweet it at us, post it on our Facebook wall or submit it to the blog. Be sure to include which restaurant the dish is from and what’s on your plate!

Each day this week, we’ll feature a Dish of the Day photo on the blog. Then next week, the RestaurantWeekBoston.com and BostonChefs.com team will select what we think are the top 5 best food photo submissions.  We’ll post those five photos to the blog, and you’ll get a chance to vote for your favorite. The photographer whose submission receives the biggest number of votes will win a $50 gift certificate to Estragon Tapas!

To give you an idea of what we’re looking for, here are some shots that were submitted last summer:


 Nobu Roll from Osaka by Jianan Shi


Peach Exploitation: house spun peach ice cream, peach & cinnamon bread pudding, half peach “canned in syrup” & vanilla chantilly at MET Back Bay by Jeff Cutler


Seared King Salmon Burger, Baby Greens, Lemon Herb Vinaigrette, Spicy Tartar Sauce at Henrietta’s Table by Marissa Velarde

So before you chow down, aim that lens, snap a photo and send it our way!

And if you still find yourself in need of a reservation, the full list of Restaurant Week menus is right here.
