Instagram is to food like chocolate is to ... just about anything, right?

The social media app with its nuanced filters and editing controls can give food photos a delicious dimension (or not, remember the gross Martha Stewart ones?)

Many restaurants and chefs in Kansas City take full advantage of Instagram, posting beautifully plated dishes to promote a menu special or images to give you a behind-the-scenes look at their lives.

Here are some local Instagram accounts that would whet any foodie’s appetite:

▪  Story, a contemporary American restaurant at The Village Shopping Center in Prairie Village, features shots of its cleanly plated dishes. It has 561 followers.

▪  Dolce Bakery’s photos prove that baking is a highly creative and fun occupation. The bakery is located a W. 69th Terrace in Prairie Village and it has 793 followers.
