Brooklyn-based Daniel Krieger is Eater's chief photographer. As such he's always on the pulse the the NYC restaurant scene and on the front lines when it comes to capturing mouth-watering dishes and cutting-edge food trends.

First We Feast connected with Krieger and had him share his 15 favorite images of the past year. Taken as a whole, the feature functions as a photo essay on the state of the New York food scene over the past 12 months. Individually, the beautiful images serve to prompt hunger pains and get the mind whirling about what to make for dinner.
