Photos of Steve Jobs leaving Flour + Water with his family after being unable to get a table have been posted online by TechCrunch.
The photos were originally from Foodspotting founder Alexa Andrzejewski who happened to be waiting in line with Jobs for a table.
According to Sfoodie, "Jobs lined up with other table hopefuls before the restaurant opened Saturday. Turns out the people immediately in front of Jobs got the last seats. So what did the man in black do? He left."
Andrejweski offered the following story to TechCrunch.
You don’t know how much I wish I’d posted “Steve Jobs @ Flour + Water” on Foodspotting now that it’s gotten Digged and over 25,000 views, but I was just caught up in the moment because I was so happy for my friend Kim, the guy in the picture, and we don’t *normally* encourage celebrity spotting.
Kim (@taro) is an awesome Swedish programmer living in Japan. He took a month off from work here at Smart.fm to do a cross-country road trip, with the idea of hitting Apple land as the Mecca of the voyage. He’d just spent the previous day in Cupertino, just to see “The Apple Temple.”
Kim is the the biggest Steve Jobs/Apple fanboy in the universe [Editor's note. Insert MG joke here], and his trip ended with him seeing Steve Jobs and getting his picture with him plastered all over the place.
Kim’s second love to Apple is food, so I’d been planning to take him to Flour + Water for months. I had no idea that Steve Jobs would be waiting in line right behind us! What are the chances that, as our other flabbergasted friend Simon put it, “the great god in his infinite kindness and wisdom would grace @kimtaro with his presence at Flour + Water.”
When Steve Jobs politely declined our request for a photo with Kim, we walked away sullenly, but moments later my husband turned around to snap this “photobomb.” It was the happiest day of Kim’s life! Here are a few more photos to dispel the Photoshop charges. Plus this guy did a thorough analysis here.
By the way — he was there with his family of course. And yes, we were just bystanders.
