In restaurant critic Todd Kliman's chat today, a reader said that he or she had recently splurged on a meal at Komi. "The food was amazing, the ambiance was great, and the service was impeccable," the reader wrote. "My only complaint? I was told the chef doesn't allow photos of the food to be taken."
