Quote: "At Blanca there are no physical walls; but the invisible wall is palpable... And it's this feeling of awkward discomfort... that, for whatever reason, is one of my most vivid memories of our dinner at Blanca... I think the no-photos policy is just another symptom of the same thing: the feeling that the diners are being tolerated, but that their enjoyment isn't the primary point of the whole endeavor." [FFT]
