Snapshots from the 2013 Saveur Summer BBQ

Last night at New York’s Boat Basin Cafe, chefs like Alex Raij, Tadashi Ono, Tiffany Derry, and Michael Lomonaco manned the grills at SAVEUR’s fourth annual Summer BBQ, feeding hundreds of fans, writers, bloggers, and lovers of food. While the crowd celebrated, we set out to capture the scene with our new favorite toy: a Fujifilm InstaxSnapshots from the 2013 Saveur Summer BBQ, whose instantly-printed pictures have a dreamy, summery feel that perfectly captured the dreamy, summery evening.
