Photos Of New Yorkers Eating Alone At Home Is Not As Depressing As It Sounds

In fact, solo dining is a growing trend
Sep 15, 2014 11:00 am

Four years ago photographer Miho Aikawa set out to capture the essence of the home dining culture in New York City.  The series of portraits, shot with an honest, fly-on-the-wall aesthetic, aimed to show that urban diners — more often than not — take meals solo, while surrounded with flickering screens (mobile phones, televisions and computers mainly). It’s a fascinating study, revealing how a graduate student from Belgium eats a salad at home after a late-evening class on the Upper East Side, or a distracted Brooklyn teenager picks at a bowl of her father’s fettuccini.

At 7:30 a.m. on a sodden Friday earlier this summer, a group of pork enthusiasts convened blearily at Ducks Eatery in New York’s East Village. Each person had a different reason for crawling out of bed at this unreasonable hour to throw back potent cold-brew coffee and talk about pig.

He's the one in a grass skirt with the bare torso.

Between the New York Times restaurant critic Pete Wells announcing the arrival of “Big Time Barbecue” in his two-star review of Mighty Quinn’s and last week’s slow-smoked feature in Food Republic by Chris Shott, it’s obvious that something special is happening in the ventilated basements and back alleyways of the city of just over 8 million
