Should We Pray Before or After the Meal?

A common practice is to pray before eating. Is this consistent with the biblical text, or is there a more accurate approach? 

Also see the meaning of bless here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWx0HyxEiuU

[Aleksandr Sigalov:] Please also check out Deuteronomy 6:7 and Deuteronomy 11:19. So perhaps we are to bless God before and after the meal? However, as video above clearly points out there is only the command to do it after (not before). So I think this video has a good point.

P.S. I found a passage where Torah explicitly states that Isaac blessed his son AFTER a meal. See Genesis 27:4 for example.
