Mintel Serves Up Restaurant Menu Trends for the New Year

When dining out, be sure not to fill up on bread and butter. Shaking and stirring everything from fine dining to fast food, these menu changes are sure to satisfy appetites, taste buds and health concerns alike.“Everyone’s looking for the next breakthrough item, the next mini burger appetizer, mojito or pomegranate flavor,” says Maria Caranfa. “This year, we expect to see new twists on already popular items, giving people more flavors and options for the foods they love. Restaurants will get more creative with foods and preparation techniques as they attempt to cater to American’s evolving tastes.”
