Dublin restaurant bans customers from Instagramming food

Bite has published a list of rules ahead of its relaunch next week. There’s bad news for James Blunt too.

THERE YOU ARE, having a nice dinner, minding your own business.

And suddenly someone’s giving it all this #dinner #delicious #foodporn #myliferocks #hatersgonhate:


And your appetite is gone, because your stomach is knotted tightly into one seething twist of fury.

A Dublin restaurant – the social-media-loving fish joint Bite, on Frederick Street – has taken the step of banning Instagram entirely (along with a number of other things).

The seafood restaurant which opened with fanfare last year is relaunching in a “more clubby” form on January 15th. (They say that their original incarnation was “‘a little more restaurant and a little less club’ than we imagined”.)

Pre-opening, they’ve published a list of rules:

So either this is some kind of ur-hipster ironic double bluff in which EVERYONE will be expected to Instagram their dinners, or we may be treated to the sight of smartphone-toting diners being ejected from Bite sometime soon. Watch this space.

Also, sorry James Blunt. No fish for you.
