What’d you have for dinner last night? Or, more importantly, were you also watching television, checking your email, playing with your cat, cooing at your baby, watching the clock at the deli, working late at the office, or juggling some other dozen daily activities that have little to do with savoring food? According to a Public Health Nutrition study 50% of our eating is now done simultaneously while doing something else entirely. Photographer Miho Aikawa captured a varied group of New Yorkers having dinner — from a thirteen year old girl in Carroll Gardens munching on pasta in bed with her computer to a daily commuter enjoying a sandwich and a beer on his way to Pleasantville to a monk from Myanmar eating a large meal cooked by and shared with friendly locals. Pop in on them at dinnertime in our slideshow.
