Video of the week: Boston steakhouse attracts diners with 'Instagram table'

Boston Chops features custom table with ideal lighting for social media

Chris Coombs of Boston Chops is not only encouraging customers to take photos of their meal but also going to great lengths to help them get the picture-perfect shot. 

The chef and owner spent $10,000 to install an "Instagram table" — a custom table with an overhead light and two adjustable side lights.

Diners at the steakhouse in the Massachusetts capital city can change the color and brightness of the side lights through an app.
