Nice frame within the frame composition, but highlights are distractingly blown out. To solve this problem, avoid using "matrix metering" and use your spot meter. Instead of taking one shot, take three or four, each time exposing on a different highlight. The walls and food will become much darker. The figures inside will be darker still, but you will be able to use Photoshop to make the people inside visible and still hold detail in the exterior. An underexposed digital image is always preferable to an overexposed image.
