Food photos offend

A series of photos have been replaced at the Overlook Restaurant at the University of Nevada, Reno after customer complaints.

It's hard to know whether the photos were intended as art. At any rate, they generated complaints. They portrayed young people in several poses with food, some of them rather unattractive poses.

One UNR staffer holding a to-go order and gazing at the photos said, “Well, I have only a few minutes each day to get out of the office and bring lunch back, so I don't have time to go to some other place on campus. If I have to pay these prices, I'd just as soon not have to look at these [photos].”

After initial resistance, the restaurant replaced the photos. That earned managers praise for being responsive to customers.
