It’s 2020 and the most obvious way to share where you’re eating is — you guessed it — on Instagram. And restaurant designers have truly caught on.

It’s all for the ‘gram. Today we’re sharing 5 spots where you can get a great meal and a beautiful shot for insta. PS: Are you following us? Join the fun here!
