Instagram has released data on the most 'grammed restaurants of 2017, but there's a twist: Food is rarely the star of these photos.
It seems like that’s by design, since these aren’t Michelin-star restaurants — they’re music venues, clubs and tourist traps.
This music venue and barbecue joint doesn’t get a lot of barbecue love on the ‘gram.
Perhaps the ultimate tourist trap, Hard Rock Cafe serves up live tunes with a side of well-done hamburgers.
This rooftop bar is a picturesque spot to grab a beverage. But you’ll find most people pointing their phones at the horizon, not at expertly crafted cocktails.
Photos of food actually grace the San Pedro Fish Market’s geolocation on Instagram, and for that we give props to California tourists and locals.
Cindy’s Rooftop offers views of Chicago’s Millennium Park. Get the views without the Chicago chill by heading to the geolocation tag on Instagram.
TAO is known for over-the-top decor and dark wooden walls. If you’re thinking this is perhaps the worst spot to take a photo of your sushi, you’re right.
The good people of Instagram regularly do justice to the achingly beautiful piles of pastrami at Katz’s, a New York City deli institution.
Pretty vines? Check. Romantic mood lighting? Check. Photos of food? Nada.
This sushi restaurant has become a global empire, but you won’t see many rolls if you try to look them up on Instagram.
The views from the rooftop look like a postcard, and it seems like that’s enough to keep crowds flocking to this Midtown bar — never mind the $18 burger.
