Caviar Food Delivery: Gregoire in Oakland

I recently started shooting for Caviar, a killer start-up based in San Francisco that offers delivery service from some amazing restaurants that don’t traditionally bring their tasty food to your doorstep. I did a menu shoot for one of their partner restaurants, Gregoire, which offers French cuisine in both Berkeley and Oakland (and if they were in SF, I would order far too often). These are snaps of a couple dishes.
