We’re big fans of Instagram, a social network that’s like Flickr for your phone. You may have heard that Facebook bought the company? It’s really simple: users post photos, made cooler with filters, and follow their friends who do the same. Like Facebook and Twitter, we are all about using Instagram — specifically for documenting the great things we’re eating and drinking in our New York hometown or on the road. Think stuffing sea bass in the Oceana kitchen, Spam sushi and some freaky good pizza.
We’ve also found that chefs are into Instagram too. That’s why we’ve asked world-traveling chef David Myers to take over our Instagram account this weekend. He’s the man behind Comme Ca, with locations in West Hollywood and at The Cosmopolitan in Vegas, as well as Sola in Tokyo. All this week he has been traveling through Italy, and on his may back to the States he’s stopping in New York for the weekend. A food-fueled weekend that will have him eating all over the city.
So you might be wondering how do you follow Food Republic on Instagram? It’s easy. Once logged in, search for our username foodrepublic in the Find Friends menu. Boom. Food porn. And if you don’t have Instagram, we will be posting the photos on our Twitter account: @FoodRepublic. (While you’re at it, follow David Myers too, @chefdavidmyers.) And if you don’t have Twitter? Good god man!
