I have some exciting news!!
The owner of the newly opened El Nuevo Mexican Grill in Greensboro, North Carolina, recently contacted me about using my bulgogi photo in his restaurant. The owner, who’s Korean, has added a bulgogi Taco to his menu in order to add a bit of Korean flair to traditional Mexican food. He told me that very few people in his area know much about Korean food, so he wanted a picture to show what bulgogi looks like to his customers. He said he searched online for bulgogi photos and found my photo to be the most appetizing!
I was very flattered and grateful that he took the time to contact me and ask my
permission to use the photo. I know he could have just easily tried to use the photo
without my permission (even though the version I put on the web has very low
resolution so it is not really suitable for print). I was happy to say yes, under one
condition: that he sends me a picture of his restaurant showing my photo and also that
he gives me credit for the photo. I also promised him that I would post the picture on my
blog so that maybe someone in the area will see it and pay the restaurant a visit. So if
you are in the area, give this restaurant a try! I would love to hear from you if you did.
Wishing the El Nuevo a huge success! Thanks again!
