When deca RESTAURANT from the Ritz-Carlton (a Four Season Hotel) asked me to come back and shoot for them after the Chef's dinner, I was ecstatic!
I wanted to share a few of my favorites from the shoot with you to tease your senses and give you a glimpse into deca's new menu. It was so much fun to work with Chef Martin. Not only does he bring years of expertise to the kitchen, but he also brings a passion that stems from his world travels and love for his family. The menu features several other dishes including Jimmy's Burger, Rack of Lamb and a full or half 'Chicken Tagine' that is sure to warm you up this winter. deca is open everyday and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. They also serve brunch on Sundays from 10:30am-5:00pm. In the warmer months, there is a gorgeous outdoor space called The dec Rooftop Bar with really beautiful views of downtown Chicago. Due to the popularity of the restaurant, reservations are definitely recommended.
I think back to when I launched the blog just over a year ago and how I went into this without any expectations. I started this blog for myself so I would have a place to post my work. Now, here I am posting this shoot from deca. I had no idea people would really take an interest in my photography and it's so unbelievably encouraging, flattering and honestly, I'm still in disbelief at times. From all the comments on the blog to the social media love and now being asked to shoot at restaurants, all I can say is thank you... and keep 'em coming!
